From Vintage Garage Chicago
“You can go back! The theme of the August 18 Vintage Garage Chicago is Punk and the 80s. With roots in the 1970s, Punk bands created fast, hard-edged music often with political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produced recordings and distributed them through informal channels. The first known use of the phrase punk rock appeared in the Chicago Tribune on March 22, 1970. Attributed to Ed Sanders, cofounder of New York’s anarcho-prankster band The Fugs, the quote described a solo album of his as “punk rock—redneck sentimentality.” The genre stretched from the New York Dolls, the Ramones and the Sex Pistols all the way to Blondie, Patti Smith and even Madonna. Enjoy punk and 80s music, funky hair and as always, lots of vintage home furnishings, clothing, jewelry, household items, electronics and more. It’s all at Vintage Garage Chicago, 5051 N Broadway June 16th from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Argyle stop on the Red Line! Fact: From the late 16th through the 18th century, punk was a common, coarse synonym for prostitute. The term eventually came to describe “a young male hustler, a gangster, a hoodlum, or a ruffian.”
