I'm skipping the reminiscence post for now and writing instead about the fun evening I had last night. The hubby and I went to the very first stop on the FOUND vs. POSTSECRET Tour.
I had an inkling that the event would be a trifle disorganized because the online ticket sales never materialized and there was a bit of confusion about the time the show started. I was right, but that didn't detract from the entertainment value of the presentation.
Frank Warren of PostSecret was the first presenter. He showed a bunch of "secret secrets" that had been left out of the books for various reasons, and explained how the site got started.
Davy Rothbart followed with animated readings of various Found Magazine pieces. He then turned the mic over to his brother, Peter, who performed three songs based on found items, including my favorite, "The Booty Don't Stop":
It's even funnier with the context of the story that introduces it.
In between performances, audience members divided into teams and competed in various silly events to determine how the admission fees would be divided between two different charities.
The FOUND vs. POSTSECRET Tour has 12 more stops in various cities throughout the U.S., beginning with St. Louis tonight. If they're coming through your town, I highly recommend that you go.
