I attended Grand Ave. Live this evening. Which is a live talk show that happens every first Thursday of each month at the trunk space. It features local artists and weirdos, funny sketches, surprise guests and usually a musical guest each night JUST LIKE A REAL LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW YOU WOULD SEE ON TELEVISION! It was also originally hosted and created by me and was then called "grand ave. tonight!" but apparently when that became too confusing for the audience to understand so now it is "grand ave. live!" and is hosted by a way better and talented man by the name of Kevin Patterson and tonight i saw my first "episode" since i have returned to phoenix and i LOVED IT! Kevin does such a wonderful job, everything has good timing, nothing drags on, nothing is too awkward, he has amazing charisma.... jeez! i am so jealous! but i am also so happy for him because it is so awesome. When i hosted G.A.T. it was just this really weird and awkward giant performance art piece (pretty much) that i tricked people into coming to (which is true, on more than one occasion i tricked people into coming) But now its magnificent. And very (for lack of a better term) "legit" in my opinion. Anyway... its good and if you havent seen it, or think the whole idea is lame...you need to go and see it because it is soooooooo good! and you will not be dissapointed!
