Summer 2013: Road Trip

Summer StorySlam – Road Trip

Saturday, August 17, 2013

The theme of the Summer 2013 slam was “Road Trip.” We packed ourselves into Honeychilds and never asked once, “Are we there yet?” The lineup of storytellers kept us on the edge of our seats with tales of road trips gone awry or, in a couple cases, going so right. What a long strange trip it’s been!

Conor McGuigan was in the driver’s seat again as our Master of Ceremonies.

We were treated to two stories by fantastic wildcards. Dennis Boyne told the story of his travels from Northeast PA to boot camp in Washington on the “Vomit Comet,” and Zach Stephens‘ shared a tale of how his minivan got him hooked up with a “f’cking metal” summer band tour.

Our judges for this event were Mary Casebolt, past Slammy winner Mike Manzano, and John Pivovarnick.
