$12-25 Suggested Donation for this Boiler Room Benefit
Please join the Mythsinger Foundation and host Brian Rohr this April Fool’s Day as we once again engage in one of the oldest acts known to humans, that of the oral tradition, where we sit together as a community and listen to the old myths, the old stories.
As a benefit for the Boiler Room, and in honor of this day of trickery, we present our annual event Trickster Tales: A Night of Storytelling. Together we will listen to the stories and wisdom of those masters of creative chaos: Coyote, Raven, Mink and more.
We are so fortunate to once again feature master storytellers, Johnny Moses, Daniel Deardorff, Harvest Moon and guests.
Please be aware that while families are invited and welcome, we are telling stories of the Trickster and mature themes and language may be present.
About the Boiler Room:
The Boiler Room (established in 1993) is believed to be the oldest continuously operating youth-run coffee house in the United States. A 501(c)(3) non-profit all-ages venue for music and art, poetry and theater, a youth-run business/social experiment, a free soup kitchen, The Boiler Room celebrates community, growth, learning and empowerment of youth and the young-at-heart. It strives to support the expression and activities of youth as a part of a larger community, in a healthy and productive way. The support offered is, in part, educational and is provided in a drug and alcohol free environment.
“The Boiler Room has been many things to many people. A coffeehouse, an art gallery, a private business, a nonprofit teen center, a cause, a scapegoat. But to me it has been a salvation – a place to be, and belong. Home. I’ve worked with some of the finest human beings I’ve met to preserve a common goal of home for ourselves and anyone else who needed it, to resolve the question of where do I belong. So many people ask it, and we can never afford to let ignorance settle such questions.” - Jake Kelly, former BR Manager
