Criminal Class Press Hosts NOIR Anti-Gala

criminalclasspress.jpg

Criminal Class Press is a literary collective founded in 2008. Publishers of the literary journal Criminal Class Review, they sum up their aesthetic as "where the scumbag's voice is making a genre for itself" and "real life in the trenches. The punks and broads that the rest of us are. And if it's not you, it's looking for you, so watch out." Watch out, indeed: they're kicking off a five city East Coast tour on October 19. If you don't care 'cuz you read Gapers Block to find Chicago hell to raise, then listen up, punk: this Saturday they'll be hosting NOIR, An Anti-Gala, to raise funds for the tour. Featured readers are Jim Goad, Gint Aras, Deb Lewis, Nicollette Kittinger, Brian Murphy, Julia Borcherts, and Windy City Story Slam's Bill Hillman. There will be featured artwork by Ricardo Cozzolino, Tim Piggott, Jansen Sterba, Joe Chavez, Jason Adams and more. $15 gets you all that raucous entertainment, plus drinks and food by Big Bite Catering. Tickets can be purchased here. NOIR will be held at Joone Studios, 1372 N. Ashland. September 25 at 6pm; readings start at 8pm. $15 cover. Afterparty at Cobra Lounge, 235 N. Ashland.
