Grown-up Storytime502

Grown-Up Storytime502 takes its roots from a long-running, monthly storytelling event originating in Houston, TX. Producer and host of Grown-up Storytime502, Abby Koenig, moved to Louisville in 2019 and was missing her old city’s signature event. Grown-Up Storytime Houston began a decade ago and has since become a sold-out monthly to-do. When Koenig was looking for something similar, she was naturally drawn to The Moth. “The Moth is amazing and classic,” says Koenig, “but there are some people who just want to share their story and do not have the courage to get on stage and read. This is where Grown-Up Storytime502 is different.” Rather than pulling names out of a hat and competing for the top prize, Grown-Up Storytime502 offers anyone the opportunity to submit a story ahead of time. Stories are then vetted and assigned to a rolling list of storytellers—actors, performance artists, or people who feel comfortable on stage sharing their unique perspective of the story. Without writers having to feel the pressure of reading in front of an audience (the number 2 biggest fear after dying according to Seinfeld), they can submit their sordid tales knowing they are in good hands. What makes for a good grown-up story is a relatable passage of life, told from the first-person perspective. Stories can be sad, funny, or off the wall, but they should be written so that anyone can read them, and they should clock in at less than 10 minutes read aloud. Writers wishing to submit stories and those interested in reading can email Grownupstorytime502@gmail.com. Event is FREE!

Joan Shelley

Joan Shelley is a songwriter and singer who lives in Kentucky, not far from where she grew up. She draws inspiration from traditional and traditionally-minded performers from her native state, as well as those from Ireland, Scotland, and England, but she’s not a folksinger. Her disposition aligns more closely with that of, say, Roger Miller, June Tabor, or her fellow Kentuckian Tom T. Hall, who once explained—simply, succinctly, in a song—I Witness Life. She’s not so much a confessional songwriter, and she sings less of her life and more of her place: of landscapes and watercourses; of flora and fauna; of seasons changing and years departing and the ineluctable attempt of humans to make some small sense of all—or, at best, some—of it. Her perspective and performances both have been described, apparently positively, as “pure,” but there’s no trace of the Pollyanna and there’s little of the pastoral, either: her work instead wrestles with the possibility of reconciling, if only for a moment, the perceived “natural” world with its reflection—sometimes, relatively speaking, clear; other times hopelessly distorted—in the human heart, mind, and footprint. Shelley has crossed the United States and toured Europe several times as a headliner. She has traveled opening shows for Wilco, Patty Griffin, Andrew Bird, and Richard Thompson and has appeared as a guest on WTF with Marc Maron, Fresh Air and Later… with Jools Holland. Her latest album The Spur was released in June 2022 and was an album of the year in MOJO and Uncut. Doors at 7pm/Show at 8pm

Porkistra w/Paradise Gonzolitos

porKistra is Louisville’s premier porch centric acoustic quick strike instrumental trio. Equally at home on stages, pedestrian bridges, tunnels, or in front of the fireplace, the instrumentation is bizarre, the interplay compelling, the genre elusive. Jannell Cannerday on five string fiddle, Thomas Deakin on clarinet, and Stephanie Nilles on melodica wend and wind through tight compositions with wild flights of improvisation, humor, and psychosis. Please enjoy this imaginary folk music from the land of our hearts.
