Hey Ladies & Gents It’s Your Turn

June 12, 2009

Hey Guess What? It’s tomorrow!

tomorrow, June 13th, is the closing party for the current manifestation of the Green Lantern at 1511 N Milwaukee ave.
Events will run as follows:
3pm-7pm: BBQ & Readings
5pm: Terri Griffith from her new novel “So Much Better”
6:30 pm: We will read some passages from the North Georgia Gazette

This is likely to take place is the back alley. I have a vision that all readers would stand on the back porch like kings and queens, and call down to the rest of us below; this is likely a wild fancy.

– TOASTS –
of course
will be encouraged over the course of the day

At 9pm guests are encouraged to reconvene inside, where the live music performances will start (not in this order).
This portion of the evening is BYOB. Those that stay will be encouraged to donate $5.
Casual Encounters
Oniou
I Kong Cult

Young Joon Kwok and Rachel Shine will release their limited edition zine, with silk screen covers, “It’s Your Turn,” in which various letters, essays and comments about Chicago’s DIY Art Community will be published. These will be available for a small dollar fee.

Caroline Picard is working a new novel entitled “Happy Endings.” This work-in-progress is about a group of hipsters living in Philadelphia and the events which led them to their current position in life.
