Button Down to Bring Storytelling Night to Gorilla Tango Bucktown, 10/14
The Button Down presents a night of storytelling for the bravest of souls, delving into fear and loathing and monster-mayhem from the true-life adventures of some of Chicago's up and coming storytellers. Performance is Monday, October 14, 2013 from 7 to 9 pm at Gorilla Tango Bucktown, 1919 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. Free and open to the public with baked goods for the taking and beer and wine for purchase. Advance reservations can be made at www.gorillatango.com or by calling 773-598-4549.
The Button Down is a Chicago-based storytelling community that promises oversharing that leads to understanding. Co-founders Dee Fabbricatore and Meredith Stockton created The Button Down from the mutual belief that storytelling should feel more like an intimate gathering than a spotlight performance, and that there should always be free baked goods nearby.
Since their first show in March 2013, The Button Down has hosted more than 50 local personalities and showcased their gut-punching narratives, which were crafted specifically for The Button Down based on a given one-word theme. Stay tuned for new, innovative storytelling ventures and podcasts later this year.
