Oct 16: Fbomb Flash Fiction Reading Series! Will the real Fbomb Host please stand up?

Theme: No One Can Agree on Who Kona Picked to Sub for Her

(All shows start at 7:30 at the Mercury Cafe, 2199 California Street, Denver)

That’s right! So far we have hosts Girls Just Wanna Have Us, Hillary Leftwich, Roseanna Frechette, Nick Morris, and a host of others all claiming they are hosting! See what happens on Tuesday, October 16! Nancy Stohlman and special guest Nick Busheff will give a little preview of the Oct 26 performance of Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities! There will (hopefully!) be books for sale, hot off the presses, so get your signed one!

girlsHosts Girls Just Wanna Have Us! Girls Just Wanna Have Us is a flash rock band, comprised of Daryl Gent in the Car, Hall-an and John(athan) Oates Montgomery. If flash fiction tells a story in 1000 words or less, they attempt to cover songs from the 1980s in 1000 heartbreaks or less, 3 chords or less, 2 instruments or less, 1 rehearsal or less. When an Fbomb host suddenly has to cancel at the last minute, they are the only ones flexible, courageous, and beloved enough to replace them.

nancyFeaturing Nancy Stohlman and her book Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities! Nancy Stohlman is the founder and curator of the Fbomb Flash Fiction Series circa 2013 and counting! Tonight she will be releasing her new book, Madam Velvet’s Cabaret of Oddities! Her other books include The Vixen Scream and Other Bible StoriesThe Monster Opera, Searching for Suzi: a flash novel, and Fast Forward: The Mix Tape, a finalist for a 2011 Colorado Book Award. Her work was recently anthologized in the WW Norton anthology New Micro: Very Short Stories, and she teaches at the University of Colorado Boulder. www.nancystohlman.com
