Punk Rock History Book Club

So I decided yesterday to start an inter-generational punk rock history book club.
if you wanna get in on the ground floor and watch me struggle with facilitating really grumpy opinionated people via skype click here.
and if you arn't on the evil facebook.
email me.

But really I just want to gather a group together in Providence  with Girls Rock! RI to talk about music culture.

FYI-The amazingly talented Erin Kilkenny made that logo in a heartbeat.
making this idea all too real.
