(BOISE, ID) Story Story Night breaks out the second show in the adult-themed, adults-only Story Story Late-Night series on May 14, 2012 with a return to the scene of CRIME Stories, featuring host Josh Gross and guest musician Sun Blood Stories. Held at Visual Arts Collective, a 21-and-over venue located at 3638 Osage Street in Garden City’s arts district, CRIME begins at 8 pm.
Limited advance tickets are on sale now for $7, and allow holders in when doors open at 7 pm. Advance tickets ensure a sure shot at a seat until door tickets go on sale at 7:30 pm for $5, and guaranteed entry afterwards.
The black sheep offshoot of the popular live storytelling program, each Story Story Late-Night will be hosted by a provocateur from the community, a storytelling emcee who embodies the spirit of a scandalous theme. The host will open the night with an audacious story, then open the floor to the audience. Names will be drawn from a vessel, and the chosen ones will come up on stage and tell a story. Subject-matter relevant prizes from All About Games, Bricolage, Record Exchange, Rediscovered Books, Trip Taylor Bookseller and more will be given to storytellers.
CRIME host Josh Gross was a featured storyteller for Story Story Night’s April 2011 theme, but his reach in the arts community extends deep, in a wide range of genres, from comedy to theater to music. He recently ended a sold-out run with Homegrown Theater for a production of his script, Veronica Livingstone, I Presume? His collection of short fiction, Secrets & Lies, is available at local booksellers, on Amazon and at the upcoming show.
Guest musician Ben Kirby of Sun Blood Stories opens the Late-Night and adds to the overall tone with theme-worthy music.
“Positively shameless. Downright scandalous. Absolutely a don’t miss,” says Jessica Holmes, the driving force behind Story Story Night. “Our first Late-Night was an amazing success, full of wild stories and uninhibited honesty, all rewarded with fantastic themed prizes. So get your CRIME story ready, change names to protect the innocent, and get down to this show.”
Story Story Late-Nights continue after CRIME on select second Mondays throughout 2012 with BODILY EMISSION Stories on July 9 with host Kiely Prouty; and INTOXICATION & ALTERED STATES Stories on October 8 with host Brandon Follet.
