SPoC’s Last Hurrah?


We’re back! And more nerd-friendly action for ages 8 to adult. Join SPoC for their last hurrah, and much needed beers in cans.

It’s all happening at the CHI-PRC at 8PM on Thursday May 19th.

There’s still time to keep SPoC alive! If you have a desire to take control of our disparate community of introverts and bookmakers, there’s an opportunity for you. Meet new people, see the insides of bars and bookstores, and engender the punk-rock aesthetic that zines and handmade books espouse.

Or you could just paint your nails and talk about boys. Either way.

Be there AND be completely square.

Love, Victoria
