What was so great about the depression anyway?

Uh, can I see the classifieds section?

If you’re like me, you’ve blamed your lack of funds on everything from The Man to Rupert Murdoch to a weakness for 4am cab rides. But what really causes economic decline on a global scale? The Society for Advancement of Social Studies lecture series presents the ultimate brokester’s (free!) history lesson at the March installment of its lecture series next week: The Great Depression. A bona fide history grad student will enlighten you on Black Tuesday, the New Deal and everything in between while you enjoy themed drink specials. Celebrate your new found knowledge on the Dust Bowl and Big Apple damage control tactics with beats from DJ Kate Pilgrim and comic relief from the Crappy Cinema Council. S.A.S.S. also promises a bindle stick prize package raffle, so you can leave Public Assembly feeling — if not better — at least better-informed about your own financial state. RSVP on Facebook.

Tuesday, March 6, 7–9:30pm, Public Assembly, 70 N 6th St., Williamsburg.
