Story from the Keg

In Uncategorized on May 11, 2010 at 1:11 am

We will have video from show III up soon.  In the meantime, please enjoy a tale of work by the fan-diculous Maggie Ryan Sandford.

The Dying Day of Travis Docker

The worst summer of my life was supposed to be the best. I was 19 — no longer a girl, not yet a woman, home from college and ready to make mistakes. But half-way through June, I found myself poor as shit, breaking up with my boyfriend of two years, and working dawn to dusk at two grimy jobs: weighing out sacks of cheese at a local pizza joint until noon, then biking across town to kiss the day goodbye from the shittiest poster shop in Seattle’s University District.

View the rest of Maggie’s Story!

John Jodzio’s Book…

In Uncategorized on March 17, 2010 at 12:46 pm

As we relax before the next show (April 3 — Get your tickets!), we’re all reading our pal John Jodzio’s new book of short stories (we’re also fist-pumping and high-fiving as these stories are very, very good).

Check it out at Amazon or read some of John’s work at his website.  You might also want to check out his book trailer below!

Enjoy this stuff.  John is a mensch and an amazing writer.

There were winners. There were losers. There were brats. It was a great afternoon at our favorite corner of Minneapolis. If you missed PowderKeg Live! at the Ritz yesterday, don’t worry. We’ll post video and audio highlights soon.

In the meantime, be sure to get your tickets for the April 3 show. The house was pretty packed yesterday, and we don’t want you to miss out on our next theme—RESURRECTION (because everyone knows the act of rising from the dead makes people yearn for live variety shows made for radio).
