Looking for the rockingest places in Chicago

I'll be heading to Chicago this weekend for a vacationy weekend in a new city. I've got an armload of plans for various things to see and do (including the Wax Trax popup shop), but I also wouldn't mind doing some shopping while I'm down there.

Baby WanKenobi loves the song Little Boxes. I think she likes it because it's bouncy. I love singing it because it's subversive and snarky. What other songs might we enjoy? [more inside]

California gothic?

I really enjoyed the "You're as Cold as Ice" segment of This American Life's "Mistakes Were Made" show - can anyone recommend other documentaries / books / articles about the creepy / gothic side of California counterculture and technofuturism in the 60s and 70s?

"Now, before we heave a brick through that window..."

RISC architecture is gonna change everything.

Cyberpunk, hacker culture, BBSs and alt.2600 newsgroups... have they really all gone? Is it really all virus breeders and script kiddies now? What has happened to the cyberpunk movement - I keep reading it has died and post-cyberpunk doesn't seem to be doing much. What is the current counterculture on the net? Please don't tell me it's goths weeping on their keyboards? [more inside]
