Fray Cafe Austin 5: Recap of Fray Cafe 5
Posted by Eric on Wednesday 16 March 05 @ 10:00PM

Fray Cafe 5 didn't have a theme, despite the constant recurrence of goats. It was not planned. Seriously. Goats are just part of life.

I digress.

The show ran from 8:30 until midnight, with featured speakers Kevin Smokler and Robert Nagle, and a stream of regular and first-time open mic performers.

Kevin shared a story about his first day as a journalist; Robert recalled his perils with cleanliness in Albania; Andrew confronted his fears about terror; Ryan encountered a car crash; Halcyon told a story about love and porn; Cinnamon shares how she got her name; Michael had sympathy for the goat; David found a family---and these are just a few of the true, personal stories that make Fray so wonderful---stories told by people like you.

Thanks to everyone who showed up to participate in Fray Cafe 5!

Fray Cafe Austin 5: Look out Austin!
Posted by Derek on Monday 7 March 05 @ 10:28PM

Just wanted to step in with a hearty thanks to the local organizer of Fray Cafe 5, mister Michael Brown, who's been the guy behind the scenes for almost all the Fray events in Austin over the years. And special thanks to our emcee Eric Rice, who's an original Fray contributor and frequent performer at Fray events. He's also got a way with a video camera. Look out, Austin, it's gonna be a helluva show!
