LarkFEST Highlights Video

If you want to get a little video feel for LarkFEST, look no further. And be sure to enjoy not having to deal with all of the traffic and people associated with actually going to LarkFEST. The video is done very well and makes me realize there may have been more going on than just me being frustrated that I can’t walk at a normal pace.

Here it is. You’ve got a few more hours of daylight left on this perfect day to go hop on the bike or take a walk and find these amazing pieces of art that have been popping up over the past week or so. If you want to check out some of the art before seeing it in person, check out our post from Friday to get a little preview, but don’t think for a second that this replaces seeing it in person!

LOLing on Lark

Wednesday night, Andrew and I walked into a packed house at Elda’s for this month’s Laughs on Lark just in time to catch a bunch of quality weed jokes.

Although we missed some of the stand up, we still caught enough to get a taste of some local talent. I’ve never seen any form of stand up live (because snippets from Seinfeld don’t count) so I wasn’t necessarily sure what to expect.

The highlight of the night was without a doubt when a trio of comedians took turns reading out of middle school journals of their friends, dating back to 2000.

Their delivery was strong and the raw content spoke for itself riling up the crowd.

Here’s some highlights from the public reading of the diaries:

Musical guest includes Josh Vincent & Alex Wozniuk, plus a diary reading featuring Tori Burhans, Russ Davignon (Comic Syndrome) & Peter Delocis (Mop & Bucket Co).

Should be a good way to deviate from your normal Wednesday night, no? Support some talent that’s germinating in your own city and have fun while doing so!
