Nonprofit literary and visual arts group Chicago Publishers Resource Center is displaying an exhibit called “Flyerside: A Chicago Punk Scene Exhibition” that includes zines, posters, set lists, flyers, stickers, and other ephemera from the city’s storied punk past. You can visit “Flyerside” at CHI PRC during normal hours—Sundays from noon till 5 PM—or at the CHI PRC events complementing it. On Saturday, November 19, punk label HeWhoCorrupts Inc. hosts a “record and zine grab” from noon till 3 PM, and your $5 donation goes to CHI PRC and Young Chicago Authors; that same day Brown and Proud Press holds a POC zine workshop at 4 PM. On Saturday, November 26, CHI PRC screens Chicago hardcore punk documentary No Delusions at 6 PM. “Flyerside” closes with an event November 30.
Speaking of punk, on Friday, November 18, at 7 PM, Quimby’s hosts “Punk Then, Punk Now, Punk Forever: Documenting DIY Culture,” a talk with Daniel Makagon, author of Underground: The Subterranean Culture of DIY Punk Shows; David Ensminger, author of Out of the Basement: From Cheap Trick to DIY Punk in Rockford, Illinois, 1973-2005; and Los Crudos and Limp Wrist front man Martin Sorrondeguy.
Coverage of the president-elect’s sorry ass has been drowning out news from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota, where the Standing Rock Sioux are standing firm against an oil pipeline that threatens their drinking water. At 4 PM on Saturday, November 19, protesters will gather at Loomis and 18th Street and march to the National Museum of Mexican Art for a fund-raiser at 6 PM to benefit Standing Rock’s protectors. It’s give-what-you-can, but $15 gets you a print by the Speakeasy Press. The event includes sets by local Native American group Red Line Drum and Pawnee/Seminole rapper Quese IMC, an auction of local art, appetizers from La Catrina Cafe, and a workshop by Karakol Screen Printing Collective. v
