Oct 17th, 2011 7:00PM – Story Slam @ Club Passim

8:00 pm in Events by massmouth

What’s your story? Have you had a near-miss on a bicycle in the city? Have you been stranded in the countryside with a flat tire? Or, do you prefer wheels of another variety? Skateboards? Roller Blades? Wheels of thought? Wheels of industry? Third wheels?

The first Cambridge Story Slam of the season at Passim @ 47 Palmer Street, Cambridge, MA @ 7:00pm.

Join cycling “evangelist” Richard Fries and massmouth co-founder Norah Dooley at legendary Club Passim in Harvard Square for the first event of the 2011-12 Cambridge story slam season. Ten lucky tellers will be chosen at random to share their stories about “Wheels” and compete for prizes in the season-long competition. As our special guest, Fries will offer energetic anecdotes from his 35 years as a cyclist, journalist, race announcer and organizer. Host Norah Dooley will be on hand to recount her days as a bike courier in Cambridge. Listeners will be engaged in story improv games between each 5 minute feature. Passim, a nonprofit arts organization, creates an interactive and inspiring music experience for all, building a vibrant community for artists, students and audience members through its legendary listening venue and school of music.

Advanced Reserved Seating Tickets available at Passims

General Admisson $10 or $5 for students w/ID and Passim members.
