Meet our Readers: Britt Julious

Our August show is coming up and that means we’ve been performing at Great Lakes Tattoo for a WHOLE YEAR!! They have been SO good to us, I can’t even. Gone are the days of lugging equipment to and from the venue on show night, THEY LET US STORE ALL OUR STUFF WITH THEM ALL MONTH LONG!! Even the chairs! They are the best, you guys, THE BEST, and if you haven’t checked out their space, well, you really should. It’s gorgeous. It’s nicer than where we live. For real.

In other exciting news, we have returning reader Britt Julious reading with us at the August show! Britt is a journalist and essayist born and bred in Chicago. She currently writes the Local Music column for the Chicago Tribune and is a contributing writer to publications including Vice, The Guardian, and MTV News. She currently hosts and edits “The Back Talk,” a storytelling podcast featuring young women of color. In 2014, Buzzfeed named her one of the “21 Amazing Role Models for Ambitious Twentysomethings.”

brittWe’ve heard Britt perform, and we can attest to the fact that she is an Amazing Role Model, and not just for Ambitious Twentysomethings – she’s also a role model for Type B Gen X’ers.

Our August show is on Sunday, August 9 in the fabulous gallery space of Great Lakes Tattoo. Stories start at 8pm. BYOB and FREE!
