The Moth StorySLAM comes to Martyr's!

Get ready, storytellers: The Moth StorySLAM holds court at Martyr's, 3855 N. Lincoln Ave., this Tuesday, Feb. 25.

If you're bursting with a story to tell, then this night is for you. If your tale is true to theme (this month's is "Happy"), then feel free to sign up to perform any time after doors open at 6 pm; or if you'd rather a seat of power, sign up to be a judge for the night. Then at 8pm, storytellers will be picked at random for five minutes of stage time. To be clear, this is not a reading. Storytellers are sharing true experiences. Who knows what you'll hear; it could be side-splittingly funny or totally heart wrenching.

If performing isn't your thing, join the crowd for a night of great stories you'll likely be sharing with friends at work the next day. Help cheer readers along as judges will vote on who becomes the next StorySLAM winner. This event will be a preliminary for the Moth's GrandSLAM Championship.

Tickets are $8 at the door. The venue is 21+.
