Limited Capacity seats available


The Mekons have been called political provocateurs, social agitators, and punk’s reigning contrarians. Director and Chicago native, Joe Angio, chronicles
the group’s unlikely formation as British art students who came together in the first blast of punk rock in 1977, despite being geographically dispersed
and lacking commercial success, to tour and make adventurous and challenging albums. This engaging documentary also delves further into the band’s ranks to
spotlight individual Mekons’ ancillary, yet impactful artistic lives as painters and avant-garde artists.

PLAYING WITH:
Voice of Englewood- "Cold World" - Jean-Marc Giboux / USA / 4 min. - "The young leave before the old ...Why this world so cold?" Chicago hip-hop artists rap about the realities of inner-city violence. Recorded in Englewood’s Crusher’s Club, an organization that redirects the path of youth.
