Chirp 107.1 FM has partnered with the Chicago Film Society to present a brand new 35mm print screening of Rock ‘N’ Roll High School at the Music Box Theatre.
In a just world, the punk iconoclasts in the Ramones would have been offered as many starring vehicles as Elvis and the Beatles combined. Alas, we’re left with only a single, perfect example in Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, the Roger Corman-produced youthsploitation effort pitched for Cheap Trick but gloriously retrofitted for the brothers from Queens. Riff Randell (erstwhile scream queen P.J. Soles, solidifying cult icon status) is the biggest Ramones fan at Vince Lombardi High School, but her plan to liberate her dance-crazy classmates with tickets to see the band is put in danger when the dictatorial new school principal Evelyn Togar (underground darling Mary Woronov) declares a moratorium on rock ‘n’ roll. Like an issue of Mad Magazine come to life, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School never relents in its wall-to-wall silliness, a cyclone of bad puns, dopey site gags, and exploding mice capable of pummeling even the stoniest audience member into caws of ecstatic laughter. By the time the film crescendos with the Ramones blasting through five full live numbers in the span of time most movies would devote to two, you’ll also be ready to declare yourself a teenage lobotomy.

Every fourth Wednesday of the month is CHIRP Night at the Whistler — an evening where you can enjoy the music of CHIRP-curated local artists, the Whistler’s take on classic cocktails, and the good feeling of supporting independent radio.
This February, we're excited to welcome Chicago's own Glitter Moneyyy and Jen and the Dots to the Whistler stage. As usual, there is no cover for this 21 and over event, and Jen and the Dots kicks it all off around 8:30pm.

On Thursday, March 7th, the first CHIRP Music Book Club of 2019 will meet to discuss They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, Essays by Hanif Abdurraqib.
"The Ohio poet/critic digs deep into what it means to be American in our moment ― and how much music has to do with it." ―Rolling Stone, The Best Music Books of 2018
"Moving seamlessly from Fall Out Boy to Nina Simone, from Bruce Springsteen to the death of Mike Brown, Abdurraqib centers this masterful collection of essays not only around music and the way it’s shaped and carried him through life, but the tiny sparks that help us survive." ―Fanzine
"Funny, painful, precise, desperate, and loving throughout. Not a day has sounded the same since I read him." ―Greil Marcus, Village Voice
Book club starts at 7pm at Roscoe Books, located at 2142 West Roscoe. It's BYOB and light refreshments are provided. For more information about Music Book Club, visit our page at Roscoebooks.

The Moses Gun is a Chicago based rock band that features the soul stylings and distorted chaos of Vell Mullens on guitar and vocals, the rumbling sonic fury of Rich Harris on bass, guitar, and backing vocals and the brilliant brutality of Jeff Wiseman on drums.

Oh Pep!— who are releasing their second full-length, I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You…(WHEN, ATO Records)— have always been as driven as they have been wildly creative. The duo met almost a decade ago, and it was fateful. While attending a performing arts high school in Melbourne, Australia, Pepita Emmerichs happened to walk down a hallway past guitarist Olivia Hally. The latter was about to sing a song and asked if Pepi would join her on stage. “When we started hanging out,” Olivia recalls, “we immediately started making music together.” Adds Pepita. “We both loved musicians like John Prine and Lucinda Williams, who hit you really hard with their incredibly honest work. Studying music, we both understood the importance in instruments and arrangement, but we were also really drawn to lyricists.”
