Story Story Late Night Goes Criminal

Monday, May 14

Prepare to be brought in for questioning and ready your witness statements--Story Story Night is bringing a whole bunch of crime to Visual Arts Collective Monday, May 14.

The smarty pants peeps behind the uber-popular story event created an adults-only version, which debuted March 12. Swarms of attendees crammed in every nook and cranny at VAC and listened to a slew of wildly uninhibited tales on the theme Naked.

The second installment will feature Boise Weekly's own New Media Czar Josh Gross as the evening's master of ceremonies, who will usher story tellers up to the stage to tell of their heinous endeavors.

Unlike the original Story Story Night, the adult version will feature only one story teller, and then the floor opens for an extended story slam, during which audience members' names are drawn from some sort of vessel and those brave souls are called on to reveal their secrets to the rest of the crowd. Don't worry--there's plenty of liquid courage available at the bar, and prizes from All About Games, Bricolage, the Record Exchange, Rediscovered Books and Trip Taylor Bookseller will be awarded to sharers.

This installment of Story Story will also feature guest musician Ben Kirby of Sun Blood Stories, who will contribute theme-worthy music throughout the night and keep you calm with ambient music while you fight for a seat.

Advance tickets, which allow entry 30 minutes before the doors open to general seating, are available at the Story Story website. Tickets are also available at the door. VAC is a 21-and-older venue.
