A Cursory Introduction to the AACM The AACM (Association for Advancement of Creative Musicians) is an organization of jazz musicians formed in 1965 by jazz pianist Muhal Richard Abrams (other charter members include Jodie Christian, Steve Mc Call and Phil Cohran). Their purpose was to nurture creative music.Early members are a veritable who's who of Chicago jazz luminaries, including Henry Threadgill, Anthony Braxton,Chico Freeman, members of what was to become the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Leroy Jenkins, Wadada Leo Smith, and others. This special will examine some of the early works of AACM members as a foundation for later investigations, plundering the catalogs of classic Chicago labels such as Delmark Records and Nessa Records.

Rave On, You Crazy Diamond

Sunday Mayhem 9 Midnight to 3am
Hosted by Goodwrench

Rave On, You Crazy Diamond The wave of British "IDM" (Intelligent Dance Music - a useful label for the genre if not necessarily an apt description) in the early 90's was to some extent a reaction to hardcore and other sounds endemic to the British rave scene at the time. Some of it in retrospect was not all that bad - then again, some tunes huge at the time are embarrassing at this late date. Tune in for a cross-section of the good and the bad.

Party with Arvo Part

Girl Punks: How the 1990s Riot Grrrl Scene Launched a Revolution

Tuesday Mayhem 11 7pm to 10pm
Hosted by Cynthia Lombard

Girl Punks: How the 1990s Riot Grrrl Scene Launched a Revolution With connections to punk rock and 'zine culture; the riot grrrl scene was spawned in the Pacific Northwest and the D.C. area in the early 1990s. Taking a DIY approach to both music and feminism, young women drew on the intensity of punk to bring girls to the forefront of their own music scene. In the special, we'll provide a bit of history about riot grrrl and hear music from the artists typically associated with the scene, including Bratmobile, Lois, Mecca Normal, Heavens to Betsy, Excuse 17, Tream Dresch, and Jenny Toomey. We'll discuss how festivals in the Pacific Northwest helped to foster the movement, including the International Pop Underground Festival and later Yo Yo a Go Go. And, we'll take a look at how the riot grrrl scene empowered girls to start their own festivals and music tours, including "Free to Fight" (shows with music and self-defense demonstrations), and Ladyfest.
