Second Story benefit show!

Well, if my friends and I are going to make this work (and we are!), we need your help. Hopedaddy will be unable to attend, but that might motivate you to attend even more!

Please join us in celebrating and supporting The Second Story on June 5

The Second Story, a center for young writers opening this fall in Fountain Square, is celebrating its new space with a night of music, mingling and interactive text-based art on Thursday, June 5.

Please join us at 1043 Virginia Ave. Suite 4 (next to Alchemy ) in the Murphy Art Center. We'll open up at 6 p.m. with acoustic music at starting at 7:30 p.m. and lasting until 10 p.m. This evening is intended to help us raise money for our nonprofit space (though no donation is required) and also get everybody together who might want to help with our great cause with their ideas and energy as volunteers.

The excellent musical entertainment on June 5 comes from local musicians Adam Kuhn and Beat Debris join Real Live Tigers of Austin, Texas and Redbear of Chicago. All donations at the show go to benefit The Second Story, which will begin offering free after-school tutoring and writing workshops to students 6 to 18 starting in August.

The fun will continue on June 6 when the Murphy Art Center is open as part of IDADA’s monthly First Friday Gallery Tour. So, if you can't make it on June 5, come by the next night between 6 and 10 p.m. to check out the space, participate in the text-based art proect and listen to the Tonos Triad who will be playing for us.

Please pass this invitation on and invite anybody to either event if you think they might be interested in The Second Story or just in listening to some great music and enjoying some art in Fountain Square. These events are supported by our friends at Big Car Gallery (
