New Meetup: The Moth StorySlam

Announcing a new Meetup for The Detroit International Social Meetup!

What: The Moth StorySlam

When: Thursday, February 4,[masked]:00 PM

Cliff Bell's
2030 Park Avenue
Detroit, MI 48226

I know we have lots of events going on the last couple weeks, but the more the merrier, right?

This event might take a bit to describe, but it should be lots of fun. It's a spinoff of a New York event called The Moth, in which people take the stage and tell short personal stories. A number of these stories have ended up on the Public Radio program This American Life, if that gives you a sense of the style. It's a little like stand-up comedy, but the stories can touch on the entire range of emotion.

The StorySlam is an open-mic version of the event. Storytellers and hopeful performers will put their names into a hat, and ten will be picked to tell five-minute stories on the theme, which this month is "Love Hurts." Then the audience will vote on a favorite. You can read more about it on their page: StorySlams Detroit. Don't feel like you're expected to perform--most people will be there to listen and enjoy.

Tickets will be sold at the door for $5.
