Tuesday, March 27
6:30-10:00pm

The Kitchen
512 West 19th Street, New York, NY (map)

After party from 10:00-11:30pm at The Half King

Celebrate the release of The New Inquiry Magazine, No. 2: Youth at The Kitchen on Tuesday, March 27 for a screening of one of the buried gems of late 60′s youth-power exploitation cinema, “Wild in The Streets.”

Over four decades before “The 99%,” rock star-turned-President Max Frost told America’s youth they were “The 52%” – a majority that should act like it. In the run up to Occupy Wall Street’s declared May 1 general strike, we’ve assembled a panel to discuss the film, pop music, and revolutionary politics featuring:

Greil Marcus
Legendary rock critic and author of Lipstick TracesMystery Train, and most recently, The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years

Sara Marcus
Author of Girls to The Front: The True Story of The Riot Grrrl Revolution

Andrew O’Hehir
Head film critic for Salon.com

Laurie Penny
UK columnist and activist, TNI contributing editor, and author of Meat Market: Female Flesh Under Capitalism and Penny Red

Cosmo Bjorkenheim
New York based controversial-film maker and anthropophobe

Moderated by TNI editor Malcolm Harris.

This event is free and open to the public. Drinks are on us.
