SO YOU THINK YOU HAVE NERVES OF STEEL? Tuesday, February 1st The Hungry Brain @ 8 pm Facebook invite
… The 2nd Hand’s reading / variety show / donkey show that everyone and their mother loves. Hosted by Jacob Knabb Harold Ray, you’re liable to see all sorts of entertaining things appear on the stage of the Hungry Brain. Readings, music, puppet shows… mediocre singing in a(n)
Southern accent Appalachian accent. (Some might disagree, calling the voice of Harold Ray a gift from the Gods. Which makes the rest of us Atheists… or something…)
Apparently Mairead Case is doing some sort of graphic novel slide show. I do not know what this means, exactly… I can vouch for Mairead though, she’s a pretty cool person. She was the first person to show me this awesome video of Danzig showin’ off his book collection (I think):
The Encyclopedia Show: Punctuation Wednesday, February 2nd 1012 N. Noble St @ 7:30 pm $5.00 for students $8.00 for grown-ups (and those smart enough to not keep their student IDs) Facebook Invite
The Encyclopedia Show is the brain child of Robbie Q. Telfer and Shanny Jean Maney. An extravaganza with both literary and performance art merit, it’s off the wall entertainment (it is also off the hook, and off all other things that would make it cool). And! It’s held in a theater, as opposed to your average, seedy bar. Don’t think for a second that the Encyclopedia Show, because it’s in some fancy schmancy theatre-place, is classy. I mean. It tries to be classy. It’s not. It really isn’t. And, you know, that’s a good thing. So go watch Robbie’s elbow patches in action.
On a separate note, my parents totally went to one of the shows. My mom said, “That co-host girl [Shanny] is so cute.”
When I pointed out to my mother that Shanny’s married, she replied, “Well so am I!”
We all know that doesn’t matter one damn bit, mom.
Peeps performing: Dasha Kelly, Kevin Coval, Gabriel Gudding, Jill Summers & Susie Kirkwood (sisters, GROSS), Jus Love, George, Halle Butler, and Megan Mercier.
