Here to Be Heard.
Some know them as The Castrators, some know them as The Flowers of Romance, but most commonly, they’re known as The Slits: an experimental punk band from London with slightly-more-than-subtle feminist motifs. They toured with The Clash, released two albums, changed the punk landscape, and disappeared. This new documentary tells their tale with archival footage and recent interviews. Can’s Deli is hosting a screening, including a live performance and Q&A from Tessa Pollitt of The Slits. Tickets are limited! Tickets only available at Wooden Tooth Records and at the door (if still available). 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31. 340 N. Fourth Ave. $10-$20. Details here.
