Did you like our Fall Pledge Drive T-Shirt? It was designed by Chicago-based illustrator Laura Szumowski. We chose her design for it’s clever, layered point of view — qualities you’ll find throughout her body of work. I spoke to her about her business (Zoo-Mouse-Key Press ), her mission, and living in Chicago. Thanks so much for your design, Laura!
He’s the garbage man. He’s got 96 tears and 96 eyes. He’s a teenage goo goo muck. The late Lux Interior, frontman for The Cramps, was all these things and more, as the Cleveland native, with his partner in crime Poison Ivy, gave rockabilly a creature features twist, saturating a classic form with cult pop culture and inspiring countless bands. The skinny oddball in tight leather pants and high heels was a crazed performer, but a lot of intelligence went into the look and sound of the band, who wrote originals that equalled the obscure covers that The Cramps made famous. Let’s do Lux a solid by grabbing your iPod or MP3 player, hitting shuffle, and sharing the first 10 songs that come up.
Next week Democracy Burlesque, a political sketch comedy and variety show, will take the stage for the first of three CHIRP Radio benefit shows at Mary’s Attic in Andersonville!

Stop by Mary’s Attic (5400 N. Clark) tonight for a taste of “Hypocracy Now,” a show about the truth about lies!
