606 Magazine profiles the Needle House, 3259 S. Union St. in Bridgeport. Formerly a "cop hangout bar," then a drug lair, its current occupants have transformed it into a punk concert venue, skate ramp and home to the band Raise the Red Lantern.

By the way, 606 is looking for photographers, designers/illustrators and writers to contribute to the mag; they're holding an open house over at 1259 N. Milwaukee Ave., Apt. 2, from 3pm to 9pm today. Stop in and show'em what you got.
