A Super Early Notice that Out of the Box will be held at

The George Street Co-op’s Cafe

Seating is limited so come early and have dinner — bring some dough to buy a wrap or a sandwich or a juice, if you like.

Come celebrate poetry, song, music, comedy, juggling (yes, we’ve had it), monologuing, ranting, political letters of the editor (yep), air guitar and OPEN HEARTED, WONDERFUL Listening!!!

this Friday, 4/18/14 at 8:00 pm.

Admission: $5-$10 (donation) / $3 for students More if you can / less if you can’t. No one turned away.

Hosted by Pandora Scooter and Stephen.

How this works:
Doors open around 7:45 pm. Folks come on by and sign up on the list as they arrive. Every effort is made to make sure everyone who signs up will be given time up on the mic to share. Priority is given to those who get there earlier, but if there’s room, we’ll fit everyone in, if possible. Count on having around 6 minutes if there are lots of folks (15 or more), and up to 8 if there aren’t. If you have a piece that is more than 6 minutes, check in with either Pandora or Stephen and we’ll figure something out!
