Unfiltered Stories: Awakenings

When: Thu., Aug. 16, 8 p.m. 2012

Live storytelling is the art of allowing listeners to be in the moment with you during that WTF epiphany, that out-of-body experience, or that time you asked the rhetorical question of yourself: What am I doing? Awaken Cafe (1429 Broadway, Oakland) can relate, and brings together Bay Area storytelling wonders on Thursday, Aug. 16, for Unfiltered Stories: Awakenings. The event features Ava Roy, Joe Loya, Gina Gold, Susan McNeece, Wesley 'Scoop' Nisker, Jeff Greenwald, and Kay Demartini sharing their light-bulb moments, including a three-minute, un-memorized, no-notes-allowed audience-participation story. It's destined to be enlightening -- and most likely sold-out. 7 p.m.; $8, $10. 510-863-1440 or AwakenCafe.com
