Laura Godfrey wrote a nice piece about the latest Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids show:
On Wednesday night at The Tranzac downtown, a 34-year-old man took to the stage and spewed more than 60 insults and obscenities to a large crowd. They hooted with laughter, gasped at the more taboo terms and broke out into applause when it was all over.
Andrew Jehan’s performance was an extreme example of what audiences might hear at Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids, a free reading series whose name pretty much says it all. This was the eighth installment of a show where people read old diary entries, angsty teen poetry and mystifying grade school assignments to a roomful of strangers.
A big thanks to everyone who came out to GRTTWaK8 at the Tranzac on September 17th. It was a great time.
I have two more Wednesdays at the Tranzac this month, with two very excellent shows:
- September 23: Singer/songwriters Kevin Quain, Patrick Walsh, and Peirson Ross (Facebook event)
- September 30: Japanese popsters The Moist Towelettes (Tokyo) wsg The Sweat (Facebook event)
Hope you can make it out.
