Join CHIRP at this annual street party celebrating Ribs and Rock & Roll. Kick off summer at Ribfest Chicago!

Voted Chicago’s Best Food Fest, Ribfest Chicago is also nationally recognized for its music. Fest goers can enjoy 25 hours of original music, from honky tonk to indie and rock, performed by premier touring bands from across the US and abroad.

It’s no wonder that Ribfest Chicago remains one of the city’s best summer attractions.

/ Join CHIRP At the Monarch Art + Wellness Fair

Buy tickets to this event

Hyde Park Art Center
5020 South Cornell Avenue
Chicago, IL 60615

All Ages


CHIRP will be tabling and playing music at the first annual Monach Art + Wellness Fair!

Monarch Art and Wellness is a Chicago-based public programming initiative established in reaction to a lack of representation of women, non-binary folks and femmes at recent summer festivals. 

Monarch aims to bridge the gap between art and wellness while providing vendors and visitors with a rich network of local women, gender non-binary, and femme identifying practitioners. Through a diverse roster of public programs on physical, mental, spiritual, sexual wellness, Monarch functions as a collaborative project providing local healing resources for women, gender non-binary and femme identifying communities and people of color. Monarch serves to establish a dynamic, intersecting network among Chicago creatives through interactive events and spaces for healing, honesty, and reflection.

CHIRP Music Book Club: Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil & Gillian McCain

RSVP to this event

Roscoe Books
2142 W Roscoe St.
Chicago
(773) 857-2676

CHIRP's Music Book Club selection for July is Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk by Legs McNeil & Gillian McCain

A contemporary classic, Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk is the definitive oral history of the most nihilistic of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Richard Hell, the Ramones, and scores of other punk figures lend their voices to this decisive account of that explosive era. It is the number one best-selling Punk book of all time. It has been published in 12 languages and helped launch the oral history trend in music books.

“This book tells it like it was. It is the very first book to do so.”

—WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS

“Immensely entertaining…I found these tales of unholy madness and drug-fueled abandon all too thought-provoking.”

—ROBERT CHRISTGAU, The New York Times Book Review

“Please Kill Me is a scenester’s paradise, four-hundred pages of person-to-person, ‘I was there’ testimony fabulously edited for speed and irony. It calls up Edie, but it’s much richer. A lot about Edie was about covering up; in Please Kill Me, you rarely, if ever, get the feeling anyone is protecting a reputation or holding back.”

—GREIL MARCUS, Interview Magazine

CHIRP Music Book Club meets at 7pm and refreshments will be provided. Get a 10% discount on the book and learn more about book club at Roscoebooks. Help us pick our final discussion book for 2019 here
