The Moth Story SLAM at Circus Bar and Billiards

. October 1, 2016.

From the annual storytelling festival to the storytelling guild, Ann Arbor has a long history of performers telling a yarn on stage. The Moth Story SLAM, presented by Michigan Radio, gives non-performers a chance to share their stories with the rest of the world. This month, two different storytimes take place: Haunted tales, stories about a spooky fixation, and Hot Mess, stories about catastrophe and chaos. Stories can be funny, tragic, embarrassing, uplifting — as long as they’re entertaining or enlightening. Sharing is not mandatory for attendees, but why not get the weight off your chest?

Tuesday, October 4 and Tuesday, October 18.
6pm/door | 7:30pm/show | $10
