The Triggering Town Review
“When you are honest to your feelings, that triggering town chooses you.”
— Richard Hugo
The Triggering Town Review is a pleasant midsummer night show with all original music and literary work including poetry, stand-up, dramatic bits, cartooning, video work, and what have you. Hosted by poet Ed Skoog and musician Sam Watts (of the band Ghosts I’ve Met), the show is written and performed by a cast of Seattle’s best writers, musicians, actors, architects, and other art weirdoes.
The cabaret bar will be available before the show, at intermission, and afterwards.
While the show has no announced theme, the lyric nature of the collaboration will weave together various strands. The highbrow aesthete and lowbrow stumblebum will be pleased by its memorable associations.
The physical program, handed out at the door, will also be called The Triggering Town Review (edited by Rich Smith). This magical program will include much of the original writing for the show, along with ephemera from the process, including the maps created for the projections.
The event costs $10. Purchase tickets for Saturday at the link above (best if you’re bringing a squad), and here for Friday’s event.
