For those of you who have and have not been to Porchlight, a storytelling series produced by Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte at the Swedish American Hall next to Café du Nord in the city, here is your chance.
I will be telling a story (GULP) Monday, April 23. The theme of the night will be The New Black: The Fashion Show.
Tix are $12 and you can buy them at the door, or ahead of time online at cafedunord.com. Doors open at 7. Show starts at 8.
Here’s a review of Porchlight by Flavor Pill:
“The Porch Light Series works from a universal truth: open mikes are bad choices for first dates. A night of wobbly voices, untuned acoustic guitars, unfunny stand-up comedy, and unending fiction pieces could end even the strongest of relationships, let alone a fledgling one. Organizers Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte have created some ground rules (no memorization, no “performance,” and a strict 10-minute limit) to cut out the risks, with a result of pure pleasure — people get up and tell great stories. The strength of the series lies in the range of people who contribute, from current mayoral candidate Matt Gonzalez to an elderly mushroom hunter, with a smattering of local literary talent. Arrive early to get a seat, as this urban storytelling event is no longer an open secret; it’s just plain open.”
