The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.

Put On Your Red Shoes and Dance The Blues

Last night I had a slideshow of Bowie photos looping backstage just because.

We surprised the audience with a Bowie Tribute at the end of the show. I'd asked Lauren Maul to write a 4-minute medley and did she ever. We ran the slideshow on the big screen on stage while she got us all up in a good ol' fashioned singalong. "Just some folk songs by a recently fallen hero...", she proclaimed before gleefully launching into "Young Americans." <3
