McQueen to Walker

British film director Steve McQueen, whose limited but impressive body of work shows him to be a master at making us simultaneously fascinated and uncomfortable, will be Walker Art Center’s retrospective and dialogue subject this fall. The first of three films shown will be “12 Years a Slave,” his highest-profile release, receiving its regional premiere Oct. 30. McQueen’s sexual-addiction drama “Shame” (2011) screens on Nov. 6, and “Hunger” (2009), the true story of an inmates’ hunger strike in a Northern Ireland prison, on Nov. 8. He speaks Nov. 9 at the Walker. Tickets go on sale Sept. 17.

Suburban ride

Before a gig at the State Fair grandstand in 1985, Beej Chaney and Hugo Klaers of the Suburbs took a spin around the race track there in the Chaney family Saab. “We went one lap around the racetrack at like 80 miles per hour and it was as frightening as can be,” recalled shotgun rider Klaers. A grandstand official scolded them, saying the car’s wheels weren’t calibrated for the track’s banked turns. “The guy told us that our tires were that close to blowing up and we would have spun out of control,” Klaers told I.W. So when the ‘Burbs returned to the grandstand on Friday, Chaney simply rode backstage in the band’s 1947 Greyhound bus, driven by manager Jeff Buswell.
