Curbside Splendor Publishing is piecing together an oral history of Chicago venue The Empty Bottle, hosts of The Wire’s now defunct Adventures In Modern Music festival, which ran for ten years. Curbside Splendor’s publisher Victor David Giron has an open call out for stories and photographs of the venue, which can be submitted online. The book is slated for publication in Autumn next year, and will be titled The Empty Bottle Chicago. An Oral History. 20-Something Years of Piss, Shit, and Broken Urinals.
