Saturday, July 2nd @ 7 pm

Who here is excited about the 4th of July? Yeah, me neither.

We are having a noise show at the shop this Saturday, July 2nd at 7 pm!
Please come out and bring your friends -- in a mask! 😷 -- donations are welcome at this in store performance. Please make sure to enter and exit quietly to respect our neighbors. 🖤
Meenakshi M. :
Yes, our fave employee makes noise music! As she describes her set:
"I use drone-like harsh electronic sounds as a conduit for having inner peace with oneself."
Reid Karris & Janna Lee:
"We can be described as 'scrapes, screams, klangs, and moans.'"
Nu A.M.:
"A live soundscape collage using field recordings, cassette tape loops, echo indulgence, and radio waves."
We are super excited to hear these musicians perform on Saturday! Hope you can join us at 7 pm.

Wednesdays @ 6 pm at Chicago Patchwork Farms (2825 W. Chicago)

Wanna take an outdoor yoga class at Humboldt Park's own fully functional small vegetable farm? You're in luck! Our owner/curator, Sarah Luczko teaches Hatha yoga classes on Wednesdays at 6 pm in the farm's "People Patch" workshop area. No prior knowledge of yoga is required. Experienced yogis are welcomed, too! This is a breathwork focused open level class. No advance sign up needed, just meet us at the vegetable stand! $5-$15 suggested donation. Please bring a mat and a water bottle, if you can.

Sunday, July 10th @ 6 pm

Arianna Hess will be leading a reading group on The Conquest of Bread by Peter Kropotkin on Sunday, July 10th at 6 pm.

In this book, Kropotkin takes the elements of Marxist theory and stretches them to a more radical end.

He states that workers naturally want to work together. The term "mutual aid" comes from Kropotkin. And we do know how beneficial mutual aid has been to communities during the pandemic. (Gofundme also falls under mutual aid, too.)

Kropotkin stresses the need for community. Individual power comes from the ability to help the community. Personal responsibility is necessary for survival. Being part of the community and this personal input allows the individual more time in their day to follow their bliss after fulfilling the community's needs.

While Conquest of Bread was first published in 1892, it has remained a readable hallmark text for anarchists and politically minded folks.

We hope you join us for a lively discussion. We have copies of the book in stock in our online shop.
