Mike Bennett writesFriday iPod/MP3 Shuffle—Happy Birthday Stephen Morris Edition

When I think of Stephen Morris, I think of the scene in the movie 24 Hour Party People, where producer Martin Hannett is berating Morris’s drumming, trying to mold him into a specific sound. Whether that scene is close the the truth, I do not know. What I do know, is that Morris’s drumming was a vital part of Joy Division’s sound, and then his steady beatkeeping kept people dancing to New Order tracks throughout the ’80s and beyond. In addition to a key role on so many great records, he married bandmate Gillian Gilbert. He has never been at the forefront of music, but that is often true of those who provide the backbeat. Let’s honor Morris on his birthday by grabbing your iPod or MP3 player, hitting shuffle, and sharing the first 10 tracks that come up.

Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesTONIGHT: Democracy Burlesque @ Mary’s Attic

Marking comedy out of politics isn’t easy at a time when politicians are so intent on doing it all by themselves. It takes a special group of performers to shine a satirical light on the current landscape, and we know just where you can find them.

Democracy Burlesque (where “Only the Politics are Naked!”) will take the stage tonight at Mary’s Attic in Andersonville with Hypocrisy Now!, their live-action takedown of the poseurs, preeners and pretenders who are trying to pass themselves off as our leaders.

This is the first of three shows that will be performed over the next month, will all proceeds going to benefit CHIRP Radio!! Join us for a great night of comedy and truth!

Erik Roldan writesLaura Szumowski of Zoo-Mouse-Key Press

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!
