Nashville Unchained 

When: Sun., Jan. 13, 7:30 p.m. 2013
With the flash of a lightbulb simultaneously shining over all our heads at once, East Side Story began East Side Storytellin’ in the back room of Rumours East last fall, and Corporate Juggernaut organized Pictures of Fireworks, a nonfiction showcase that paired stories of drunken hedonism with heart-wrenchingly hilarious recollections of what it feels like to tell your mom you’re a lesbian. Now, in the back of a 1972 Bluebird schoolbus, The Unchained Tour is rolling through Nashville to add its voice to the storytelling trend, and we couldn’t sign up fast enough. The project was founded by George Dawes Green, whose acclaimed storytelling network The Moth has been a mainstay in New York for more than a decade. Among the scheduled raconteurs who are traveling across the South in this mini-tour are Annie Duke, a poker champion and the author of Annie Duke: How I Raised, Folded, Bluffed, Flirted, Cursed, and Won Millions at the World Series of Poker; Tim Manley, a mentor with PEN American’s Writers In Prison Program; Michaela Blei, an educator who coaches storytelling in New York; and Peter Aguero, who leads the improvised storytelling rock band The BTK Band. Christopher Paul Stelling is the musician for the tour. For the advanced among us: Pair this event with Wednesday’s Minton Sparks appearance at The Station Inn.
