An evening of spoken word with Jello Biafra
Join us for a special spoken word outing at the beautiful Lakeshore Theater with legendary musician and cultural / political commentator JELLO BIAFRA. BIAFRA was, of course, the controversial frontman for groundbreaking punk group THE DEAD KENNEDYS. The group disbanded after a grueling obscenity trial in the eighties, whereupon BIAFRA put his energies into his Alternative Tentacles imprint, a cultural clearing house that produces film, literature and music. He's been involved in a wide variety of collaborative projects over the years, many of them spoken word endeavors. Tickets for this intimate seated engagement are limited, so we encourage you to purchase tickets in advance and soon.
