Car Con Carne

Aug 29, 2020

As the east and west coast punk scenes were gathering press and attention between 77-84, the Chicago scene went largely unnoticed. The documentary film, “You Weren't There: A History of Chicago Punk, 1977–1984,” tells the story of that era in great detail.

Filmmakers Joe Losurdo (himself a product of that era) and Christina Tillman join me tonight to talk about the “lost years” of the Chicago scene, filmmaking and their “punk musical,” “Sacrificial Youth.”
