Words and Music Assault Your Senses this Wednesday

Local publishing juggernaut Curbside Splendor is back this Wednesday, May, 6 for their trademark event Words + Music at the Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western, at 8pm.

The Words portion of the night is a perfect fit for the event as all readers are music-based writers. Curbside author Tony Fitzpatrick is joined by the Reader's Gossip Wolf columnist JR Nelson, Featherproof Books and Pitchfork contributor Jessica Hopper, and Chicago music guru Jim DeRogatis.

The music portion of the night was booked by local label Dumpster Tapes. Bands include the label's act Sun of a Gun as well as locals Slushy and Cutworms.

The event is free if you RSVP or $8 at the door. Books will be for sale at the event.
