Special Front Parlor storytelling night at The Linda


Jeff Simmermon

The Front Parlor storytelling series has a special night lined up at The Linda February 8 to celebrate its three-year anniversary. Event blurbage (links added):

Since February 2011, a community of storytellers has gravitated to the monthly Front Parlor Series events in Troy and Albany. From the hilarious to the heartbreaking, the Front Parlor has provided a stage for some of the most engaging and talked about stories in the capital region. On February 8th, Front Parlor will celebrate its third year, showcasing eight of these storytellers, with hosts Abby Lublin and Gregor Wynnyczuk and featuring special guest, Jeff Simmermon, who has told his awe-inspiring stories on The Moth and This American Life. Immediately following the show, DJ Truemaster will head up the Front Parlor dance party from 10pm-midnight.

The event starts at 8 pm on February 8 (a Saturday). Tickets are $12. We hear the organizers are expecting a sell out, so if you're interested in going, probably better to get tickets sooner rather than later.

More Front Parlor: This month's Troy storytelling night for the series is tonight (January 14) at The Ale House at 7:30 pm. The theme is "music." And the next Albany night, at the Olde English, is January 20.

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
