It’s going to be a show.
It’s going to be a party.
It’s going to be something to remember when all other memories have fled and our faculties failed us.
I am now counting the hours until tomorrow night’s sure-to-be-spectacular live radio show by the Lit 6 Project. For those of you not familiar, the Lit 6 are four local writers (they used to be six, hence the name) who have created their own brand of collaborative live performance of their written work. Their outstanding shows over the past few years have led to tremendous word-of-mouth buzz, and now the buzz is getting louder, thanks in part to a major feature in the Minneapolis Star Tribune two weeks ago.
Tomorrow’s 8pm show (the season opener) is sold out, but a second “sneak preview” show has been added at 5pm, so check it out if you are so inclined! Details at the Lit 6 Project website.
What a great show it was! The Lit 6 and their posse are really hitting their stride. It was great to see them in a cool venue like the Ritz Theater, and I can see that they will keep growing in coolness as the year goes on.
Up, up, and away to Kewl Land!
I still can’t get over the musical guest they had on the show this time. Local singer/songwriter Jeremy Messersmith is amazing; I haven’t been this excited about an artist since 1999, when Jude’s No One Is Really Beautiful didn’t leave my cd player for an entire semester. Messersmith is very much my new Jude.
