If you are in Chicago for the NATO summit or plainly would like to avoid it Charles Mantis will be playing Transistor Friday May 18th with Everypeople Workshop. Transistor is located at 3819 N Lincoln Ave in North Center. It’s just a short walk or cab ride from the Irving Park brown line stop. The venue/shop is located in a perfect neighborhood to grab dinner before and drinks after. A special thanks to Doug Abram of Black Bear Combo and Rat Snake Turbo Rat for all his work on this cat poster! RSVP HERE!
