(BOISE, IDAHO) The adults-only, adult-themed Story Story Late-Night season continues with TWiSTED Stories on May 27, 2013 at Visual Arts Collective, featuring story hosts Emmanuel Vera IV and Dustin Chalifoux, accompanied by musical guest Stardust Lounge.
TWiSTED begins at 8 pm, and doors open at 7 pm. Admission is $8 in advance, or $10 at the door. Advance tickets available here.
The black sheep of the Story Story Night family, Late-Nights are held on the last Monday of each month in the spring and summer of 2013 at the Visual Arts Collective, a 21-and-over venue located at 3638 Osage Street in Garden City’s arts district.
Each show is hosted by a provocateur or two from the community. These storytelling emcees embody the spirit of a scandalous theme. The hosts will open the night with an audacious story, then open the floor to the audience.
Vera also hosts Late Night Laughs at the Crux in downtown Boise, and he brings his irreverent, personal humor to venues throughout the northwest. Chalifoux, a former freestyle battle rap champion, is bizarre, quick-witted and darkly sincere, in one stand-up package.
Aaron Farnsworth will also make a guest story appearance at TWiSTED. During the show, names will also be drawn from a vessel, and the randomly chosen ones will come up on stage and tell a story. Subject-matter relevant prizes will be given to storytellers. Stardust Lounge, aka the featured VJ Nancy Spittle, will add themed texture and tone with late-night worthy spins.
“Late-Night can be summed up in one word. Shameless,“ says Emma Arnold, the artistic director behind this season of Story Story Late-Night. ”Our two hosts for this theme were best friends in their Clockwork Orange-like adolescence. Now that joint story is the start of one twisted night.”
Story Story Late-Nights continue after TWiSTED in 2013 with EXCESS Stories on June 24 with host Dylan Haas; BiGOT Stories on July 29 with host Sean Peabody; and BAD INFLUENCE Stories on August 26 with host Jen Adams.
