Hey guys! There are some fascinating talks being given today if you like to learn, there are also some great comedy events, and a show featuring Spirits & The Melchizedek Children at the Drunken Unicorn, congratulations to Jessie for winning the tickets in the giveaway, and thanks to everybody who entered and spread the news around!
Do you guys like the new banner? It doesn’t work well on small screens unfortunately, but I think it looks delightfully tacky.
Reading & Listening
The Institute for People and Technology (75 5th St) has Building a Tribe tonight, a lecture about Seth Godin’s idea. “Tribes are brands or organizations that have cultivated passionate followings. While it was originally thought that the advent of the Internet and the Information Age would bring about more uniformity and homogeneity, the opposite has happened. People are more interested in following their true passions, and tribes are their outlets.” Tickets are $20, or $15/students.
The Peoplestown Palace (116 Vanira Ave) have their final literary event of the year tonight, Peoplestown Palace Poetry Prose & Potluck 10. Anyone can share their work, sharing starts at 9:30 promptly. Guests are urged to bring food to share with everybody! After the readers are finished, anyone who feels inspired by what they’ve heard may take the mic and share themselves. No cover, but bring food.
Manuel’s Tavern (602 North Highland) is hosting Nerd Nite 12 tonight at 8pm, the lecture topics this month are “The neuroscience of pleasant and sensual touch,” “Crisis of Terrible Comics: The Worst of DC and Marvel,” and “Sharks (with or without freakin’ lasers)!” $5 cover, and you’ll want to get there early if you want to sit down and eat/drink.
