Get your eeek on! Come celebrate the release of Lumpen #87 and round two of Lumpenwave. We have not done a party in the Congress Theatre for over two years so veterens of the Lumptornic/easy listener years will be pleased. Newbies will wig out. We will be using the entire Congress Theatre to present unprecedented action: featuring international deejays, the hottest bands from Chicago to Taigkyo, horror films, make-up artists, Lumpenween treats, contests, prizes, electrovideo karaoke, apple bobbing, and a fashion show by noir and dirdie bunnie.

Sickening releases of radioactive Nowaveology and 80s insanty is to be experienced. We wish to bury this decade and move on to the early 90s. Yeah right. But really, we need your help to exorcise the demons and goblins that are hounding us.
