At Sweet 16, Pickathon Has Grown into One of the Greatest Music Festivals on the Globe
We're giving away some tickets to tomorrow night's installment of Russian Roulette, a newish show created by Back Fence PDX host Frayn Masters and Write Bloody's Derrick Brown.
I'll let them explain this one:
How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass! If they pass another teller can steal their prompt! Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt!!! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare!
At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes, like bragging rights for life. Audience rounds (we ask people to volunteer, don’t worry we won’t pull out of the audience, cuz UGH.) will also be included!
Storytellers for this round of Russian Roulette include Derrick Brown, Audrey Kearns, Brian Bradley, (LA), Arthur Bradford, Adam Arnold, Jessica Rohen, Renee Jenkinson, and Brian Ellis. Read all about 'em here.
The show's tomorrow night at Disjecta, 8 pm; you can email me by 3 pm today with "Russian Roulette" in the subject line for a chance to win (if you don't hear back by 3:15, you did not win), or if you'd rather not chance it, tickets are $12.50 advance, $15 at the door.
