Fray Day 8 Milwaukee: Success!
Posted by Krutzik on Tuesday 7 December 04 @ 11:58AM

No one knew quite what to expect for the first Fray Day to ever hit Milwaukee, but we ended up with a great turnout and some amazing stories. Around 75 people packed into the Art Bar to hear tales about Scrabble glory, childhood as a Midwestern mafia princess, a nonchalant carjacking victim, crazy roommates, love gone wrong, and the importance of "le procedure" when traveling in France.

Fray Day 8 Tucson: Great Show!
Posted by Warner on Monday 6 December 04 @ 9:29AM

FD 8 in Tucson was great this year. We had some excellent stories this year from some new faces as well as some old ones as well. This year featured stories from Kaitlin, Phoenix Wheeler, Lisa Levine, Veronica Philips, and Jef Hamby. As usual we had some excellent walk-ons featuriing a story about "Massag Parlor", the NY Zoo, learning to trust, and Army training movies.

A Big Thank You to all of the organizers this year including Veronica who stepped up as the MC and helped us out immensely. Also thanks to DJ Moabyte who provided some excellent background tunes during our intermissions.

Stay tuned for photos and audio. Additionally we are planning one or two Fray Cafes in Tucson in the coming year so if you couldn't tell a story this year you will have the opportunity again (without having to wait a year), drop a line to if you are interested in helping out in any way with a Cafe or FD 9!

Thanks again to all the performers and most of all, everyone who came out to hear great stories.
