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.

Featured Performers Announced
Posted by Krutzik on Saturday 20 November 04 @ 8:20AM

Milwaukee's first ever Fray Day will include music from acoustic duo Beautiful Pollution and stories from last year's Mrs. Wisconsin, a Milwaukee jazz singer, a well-known former drag queen, and more. It all takes place Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the Art Bar.

Judging from the storytellers’ backgrounds, Milwaukee's Fray Day promises to be a memorable event.

Adekola Adedapo is an educator, storyteller, and jazz singer who’s performed with Berkeley Fudge and Von Freeman.

Kimberley Motley is an attorney in the Racine public defender’s office, a wife and mother of two, and last year’s Mrs. Wisconsin.

Bjorn Nasett is a hairstylist at Beauty, but he’s probably better known for his years as the legendary drag queen B.J. Daniels.

Renato Umali writes the music for Milwaukee's found-text band, The Paragraphs. His meticulous journaling, largely in the form of statistics and lists, will be featured in the upcoming book "Drawing From Life: The Art of the Journal" by Jennifer New.

Jon Anne Willow is the editor of Vital Source Magazine and co-owner of the Bremen Cafe in Riverwest.

Beautiful Pollution plays at 7:30; featured storytellers start at 8:30; the storytelling open mic starts at 9:30.

Come check it out at the Art Bar (722 E. Burleigh St)!
