Today I opened the mail to find a particularly special package. Here are the contents:

At the last show we were handing out postcards designed by Amy Kuttab. When I made these postcards I explained to the printer, “We’re hoping people go to shows and mail them back to us with little stories on them. We are an organization that promotes storytelling in all it’s forms.”
He replied, “Are you going to put stamps on them?”
I frowned, “No.” That was unfortunately not in our budget.
He empathized with my budget concerns and then with a breathy chuckle said, “Never going to happen, but good luck.”

So Elizabeth is having her 1 year anniversary at Phyllis’s Musical Inn I first met her at a place called Trace, which had a ten year open mic run. She’s taken a lot of, what I think was Trace’s open spirit and brought it to Division Street. I’m very much looking forward to this August 10th show.
The last show I got to go to was Kelsie Huff’s, The Kates at the book cellar.

Janna Sobel, God, I love the way you write. She was graced with a headlining slot along with Dennis Frymire at Story Club. I am not the only Janna follower. When I arrived, she was already flanked by the luscious Brandie Madrid and her paramour, Matt. Here is the postcard I brought with me.

Susan Messing – Messing With a Friend
On the 16th I got the chance to see Messing with a Friend. I brought along with me the lovely Lynda Joy and was fortunate enough to be seated next to three lovely strangers. One from far away, (but Chicago born!) and another, Marissa with a twitter account worth following, (
or at least we believe so, come on hit approve! Wohoo, New Friend!) and Brian Elles.
