Porchlight Open Door


Porchlight Open Door is a small stage open mic event launched by Porchlight in September 2009. Storytellers add their names to a sign-up sheet, receive a free drink, and then have five minutes to spiel on the monthly theme. The evening's top storyteller, as chosen by a random audience member, receives $50 in cold, hard, United States greenbacks, a bag of hot nuts, and a pound of coffee from local roaster

Nomadic Ground


Storytelling has never been this potentially lucrative or fun!*


Open Door: Monday, July 25





Who are you? No, I mean today. Not the you with the asymmetrical bob and overalls. Not the you so obsessed with Stanley Kubrick people stopped inviting you to dinner. Definitely not the you sporting the black Neo trench coat and goatee. We'll forget about those you's. At this month's Open Door we celebrate identities in crisis. Bring your five-minute story about "finding yourself" and you could win a slot on Porchlight's 14th Anniversary Romp alongside Writer Mary Roach, Mythbuster Adam Savage and performer Moon Zappa!
