Event Description

The weather is heating up, and so is massmouth's MouthOff storytelling Open Mic series!

What is a MouthOff, you ask? A MouthOff is a Storytelling Open Mic, held somewhere in Massachusetts, that is usually videotaped and uploaded to the massmouth website. Folk tales and original stories are welcome; no reading aloud allowed, though!

We take our stories to the streets whenever we can, preferring parks and open spaces when weather permits! You provide a 5 minute story, and massmouth provides amplification and videography.

Our second MouthOff of 2010 will be held in Davis Square, Somerville's hub, in the public space in front of J.P. Licks ice cream (ice cream + stories = happy Monday). The theme will be "From Grads to Dads - are we grownups yet??" Stu and I will be there with video equipment, mic and amp, so bring your stories!
