Tonight: Fringe at the First Person Salon

Posted August 12th, 2009

Remember when we were all, “oh, you should go to the First Person Salons, they’re so cool”? Well, that was our excellent ex-intern Jennifer Burrini, who’s now columnizing for Saint Joe’s student paper, The Hawk.

Of course, everybody loves that Jenn plugged us, but she was right about the Salons too. And tonight, Fringe artists take over half of the event:

>>>Shareef Hadid Jenkins (subject of an extensive Q&A in this space yesterday) will present an excerpt from his show with Gladys Productions, Getting Your Life.

>>>Music and Motion Dance previews two excerpts from the 9 muses.

The Salons are pretty cool events: the audience is interested and supportive while experiencing new works and works in development, and the opportunity to so intimately engage people about their art is pretty rare. Also on the lineup tonight: artists Damon Reaves and Jennifer Baker.

Go, grasshopper. Learn from the arts. $8, 7:30 pm, Laurie Beechman Cabaret at the Arts Bank, 601 S. Broad St.
