Upcoming CHIRP Events

CHIRP Music Book Club at Transistor - Girls to the Front

RSVP to this event

Transistor
5224 N. Clark
Chicago, IL

Join CHIRP for the next installment of our bimonthly book group at Transistor Chicago. We'll be discussing "Girls to the Front: The True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution" by Sara. Marcus.

"Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive history of the Riot Grrrl movement—the radical feminist punk uprising that exploded into the public eye in the 1990s, altering America’s gender landscape forever. Author Sara Marcus, a music and politics writer for Time Out New York, Slate.com, Pos, and Heeb magazine, interweaves research, interviews, and her own memories as a Riot Grrrl front-liner. Her passionate, sophisticated narrative brilliantly conveys the story of punk bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy—as well as successors like Sleater-Kinney, Partyline, and Kathleen Hanna’s Le Tigre—and their effect on today’s culture." —Village Voice writer Vivian Gornick

Copies of the book are available from Transistor. Read up and join us for some great discussion and record-spinning with fellow music nerds!
