Polkacide's upcoming Chicago shows:
- Zakopane, 1734 W. Division, Friday, September 2, 10 p.m., $5 cover.
- Taste of Polonia, 5216 W. Lawrence, Sunday, September 4, 4 p.m., $6 fest entrance.
"Zakopanaceous!" was newly-minted by Michael Corcoran, a member of the Chicago Tour-Guide Professionals Association, who has a love of polka, punk, and Chicago books. His cousin, Jeff, it turns out is the Polkacide guitarist. I think I might borrow it for all new occasions when I discover wacky Chicago connections. He has a wonderful new annotated bibliography of his favorite Chicago books on the site for his Brainsnack Tours company.
