For a more direct dose of politics, downtown where punk came from, join us tonight at Lolita Bar for an epochal debate between Wall Streeter Thomas Powers and Beiruter Saif Ammous on the question “Is Macroeconomics a Fiction?” You might just learn how this civilization collapses, or learn nothing at all, or both.

Coifism for Punks (and debate reminder)
Admittedly, not all punks are involved in politics the way they are in my fantasies (likes the ones touched upon in my essay being published in a book out in two weeks — about which more soon). But it is the case that a punk hairstylist in New York, Staci Child, is the cute lovechild daughter of the man whose current girlfriend is the Australian prime minister. That’s a couple degrees of separation between the punk and the politics, but it will have to do for now.
