A Here’s the Story Contest Winner!

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.”

Postcards from The Kates to ECLT

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.

Susan Messing – Messing With a Friend

Postcard Front

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.
