Forget the Cubs versus Sox showdown--seriously, it already happened, and no one really cares who won (cough, White Sox won, cough). Do you want to see Chicagoans, hailing from north and south of Madison Street, throw down...on the north side? Story Club Chicago celebrates its fifth anniversary with its own Crosstown Classic Extravaganza on Thursday, June 5 at the Holiday Club, 4000 N. Sheridan Rd.
Story Club O.G. and founder, Dana Norris will lead a North Side team, and share hosting duties with South Side captain, Andrew Marikis. And that is as amicable as it gets, people--Will Hindmarch will be on hand to referee this fight for money, glory, and a tiny trophy.
Norris and Marikis will select from both the featured and open mic storytellers to represent the best of the city [proper]. And the lineup is made up of some of the most established storytellers of the live lit community:
Patrick Gill, Editor and Producer
Open mic sign-up is at 7pm, and the show starts at 8pm. Bring your fists--full of dollars--as donations will go toward paying featured storytellers for their hard work and artistry. And, bring your neighborhood pride, because there's no rivalry like a rivalry born of geography.
