February 2017 Events

2 Feb


Happy February!

Front Parlor is a place to tell, and listen to other people tell, five minute stories around a designated theme. True stories, no notes. It’s kind of like The Moth radio hour, which has become pretty popular on public radio and in cities around the country. In our region, we have three local Front Parlor events each month with some pretty talented storytellers. First-time storytellers and veterans alike get lots of love from the audience. Or, just come and listen. We’re all in need of a good laugh, a healthy cry, and some community these days.

Tuesday, February 14 (Valentine’s Day!) @ The Ale House in Troy
Important update: Tomorrow’s Front Parlor in Troy will be held at The Hangar instead of the Ale House. You can order food from the Ale House and bring it over, or bring something with you.
Hosted by Ashok Ramasubramanian
7:30 – 9:30 pm
680 River Street (The Ale House)
Theme: “Love, of course
It had to be Love. Perhaps not a unique theme, but one with infinite possibilities. Come with your stories of unrequited love, endless love, love of country, love in the afternoon, or any other way that “love” factors into one of your best stories.

7:30 – 9:30 pm
Quackenbush Square
683 Broadway
Albany, NY 12207

If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a little late, post a comment here.

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
