I’ll be continuing to post from Denmark this week. Here’s a street poster for the upcoming K-Town Hardcore Fest in Copenhagen. Wish I could still be here for this - Terveet Kädet!

A mini-flyer for an LGBTQ Town Hall meeting hosted by Join the Impact Chicago. I’ve been enjoying seeing these flyers around my neighborhood for weeks but didn’t want to take one until after the event date had passed.

A 1986 flyer for the Dead Boys from the collection of Stephen Perkins  in De Pere, Wisconsin. Stephen lived in San Francisco   between 1980  and 1990 and he collected tons of flyers off the street   during his  time in the Bay Area. You  can  see some of Stephen’s other collections  on Public Collectors here.

While digging through Stephen Perkins’ flyer and poster collections I discovered a mini-collection of materials from Philadelphia that a colleague in that city had saved for him. Among these posters were flyers for some small club shows that I attended when I was a mere teenager in the late 1980s. Here is an oversize flyer for a Gwar, Tad and Serial Killers show that I saw at Revival in Philly (now the bar/eatery National Mechanics). What a total mess that gig was - fake blood, sweat and carnage everywhere in a club that only held about 200 people. You  can  see some of Stephen’s other collections  on Public Collectors here.

A flyer for a 1986 show by the woman-hating, homophobic scumbag Presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s number one fan in the heavy metal world: Dave Mustaine’s Megadeth. Back then, Lethal Creed was just another metal band in the opening slot for a gig at The Stone and not another way of thinking about Rick Santorum’s values.

Just because we have the internet doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make flyers and post them on street poles. Because once you’ve already made a fancy color ‘zine cover, why not  throw a little more information onto it and call it a flyer? Bam!
Here’s an announcement for the upcoming Public Collectors event in Chicago that will feature over 200 photocopied underground music ‘zines from the late 1980s - early 90s. This reading room event will take place at The Storefront on 2606 N. California Ave. in Chicago, from 12-5 PM on Saturday and Sunday, August 6 & 7. It would be really nice to meet you folks. And if Facebook is more your speed, the event announcement for it can be found here. If you can’t make it to the event for a free ‘zine/catalog, you can pick up a copy from Half Letter Press.

Taken today: another extremely unsettling anonymous statement has been taped to a pole in my neighborhood in Chicago. This appears to be the same work as the person who previously warned us with this flyer. Note that out of consideration for the people living at this address  (who I do not believe are kidnapping teenage girls) I have chosen to block out their building number.
