A small price to pay for punk rock glory

Posted on by Lynne Monsoon in CZF 2013 | Leave a comment

Hey folks! One of CZF’s favorite fundraisers is coming up THIS THURSDAY, November 15th at 8pm. As usual, we will be rocking out at Beauty Bar (1444 W. Chicago Ave. – 21+) and there will be a $5 cover. The Reader is excited about it, too!

Leave your work clothes on the floor and morph into the anarchist, Mohawked, drug-afflicted punk rock god you’ve always wanted to be. Punk Rock Karaoke benefits the 2013 Chicago Zine Fest. The playlist features songs from the likes of the Ramones, the Dead Kennedys, the Pixies, Bikini Kill, and the Clash, all performed by you, of course.

Jami Sailor and Johnny Misfit will be your hosts, which will certainly be a great time. Jaclyn Miller is to thank for the rad artwork.

If you’re into Facebook, you can find the event here.
