Out of Time: The Material Issue Story (2021)
Sunday, September 17th 7:00pm
The first CHIRP Music Film Festival concludes with Balin Schneider's examination of Chicago band Material Issue. Formed in 1985, the trio released four albums before their time was tragically cut short by the death of frontman/song-writer Jim Ellison. But the band's influence and legacy remains in the International Pop Overthrow (the band's debut album, as of 2010 an annual multi-city music festival) and the sounds of other bands who attempt to capture power pop magic.
Out of Time will be followed by an array of Chicago bands paying tribute to Material Issue by each covering a pair of the band's songs.
The CHIRP Music Film Festival takes place at the historic Davis Theater in Chicago September 14th-17th. Tickets are available at Eventbrite.
