Please add events to the timeline in chronological order with exact dates where possible. Try to limit your entries to a single line. Important punk events that are not Chicago related can also be added for perspective, but should be italicized. Footnotes should be added where facts are in dispute or indisputable sources are discovered.

Obviously this is just a template to get started. Please start fleshing it out! (Galanter)
