Event Spotlight: Literary Rock & Roll @ Metro

It's a little bit lit, it's a little bit rock 'n roll at the Metro's Literary Rock & Roll night this Thursday. Part of Columbia College's Story Week 2008, authors Junot Diaz, ZZ Packer, Colin Channer and Hillary Carlip come to the Metro along with punk marching band Mucca Pazza to do readings and book signings. The show is all ages and it's free, so it's a good opportunity to get the not-yet-21 kids out for some literary fun. 6pm at 3830 N. Clark St. Call 773-549-0203 for more information.
