Neutron Bomb: Punk Rock Writing
Reading series with live music.
Cal’s Liquors – 400 S. Wells St., Chicago
Free admission, 21+
Chicago reading series Neutron Bomb combines live, local punk rock with readings by writers whose work has the energy and urgency of the best punk music.
Over the course of two hours, Neutron Bomb shows feature a performance by a handful of readings by local writers from the academic and punk communities.
Neutron Bomb was founded by Columbia College Chicago Fiction Writing graduate students Benjamin Kumming, Maggie Ritchie and Chris Terry because they wanted to bring punk excitement to the lit scene.
Neutron Bombs go off every two months at Cal’s Liquors – 400 S. Wells, at the corner of Van Buren in the South Loop.
