true stories

Back to school time, and that reminds us that the party isn’t over yet. Come tell us about your best (or worst) at True Stories, where the September show theme is PARTIES. It all happens Wednesday, September 13, at 7pm at Hawthorne Bottle Shop. Get there early to grab a sandwich and a drink, and get your name in the fuckit bucket for a chance to tell your own party story. Our featured teller this month is Creative Loafing’s own arts and entertainment editor, Cathy Salustri. Admission is $5.

We don’t know what’s going to happen. No notes, no props. If you get called up, you’ll get five minutes to tell us your story. Know your first and last sentence, and take us somewhere, and maybe YOU’LL be the featured teller someday.

Believe it or not, we’re a Keep St. Pete Lit event. RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1090360534432719/

VIDEO

Every person in the audience has the chance to tell a story. Put your name in the fucket bucket, and if you’re called you get five minutes to tell your real-life story. No props. No notes. The audience picks the “best” story of the night. Random prizes will be awarded…Admission is FREE. But order something from the bar for gods’ sake. Each month one storyteller is featured. At the end of the night, the audience picks a completely scientific “best” story of the night.

August is one of those months, the kind of hot and sticky that puts you in a mood to quit. We’re ready to honor that here at True Stories, where the theme for our August show will be QUITTING. Join us Wednesday, August 9 at 7pm at Hawthorne Bottle Shop. Get there early to grab a sandwich and a drink, and get your name in the fucket bucket for a chance to tell your own story.

Our featured teller will be Mike Mayleben, three-time True Stories champ! Other than that, we don’t know what’s going to happen. You may regale us with a story about that time you quit your job, then again, maybe you quit a place, or heroin.  Whatever it is you quit, come tell us about it in five minutes. Know your first and last sentence, and take us somewhere, and maybe YOU’LL be a featured teller someday. No notes, no props. Just you and your story.

Believe it or not, we’re a Keep St. Pete Lit event. RSVP here.

You will be judged. Sort of. The audience is always generous. (See this clip if you’re dubious.) You might even get a video of your story put onto Creative Loafing’s website.
