We were totally blown away earlier this month at Muni Diaries Live. And in case you weren’t able to make it, we wanted to share with you.
In January, Elyse sent us one of the sweetest diaries to date: Long story short, she left her wallet on the 33-Stanyan, and when she got it back, she also fell in love.
Fast-forward 10 months, and Mahsa the one-woman band/mime and Elyse delighted the audience at Muni Diaries, to put it mildly. Elyse retold their diary, this time in kill-me cute Dr. Seuss-like rhyme. Then Mahsa covered Prince’s “Kiss” while Elyse broke out into twirl. Mesmerizing and darling and put a bow on it already.
We knew we had a treasure on our hands when Sal agreed to tell a story on stage at Muni Diaries Live last month. Today, we’re bringing Sal’s performance to the internets. Delight in hearing your KTVU traffic reporter sprinkle his tale of attempted (and imagined) bravado on the 44 with profanities. Safe work with headphones.
You packed the Elbo Room on Saturday night to hear some live, true Muni tales, and our storytellers did not disappoint. There were many priceless moments (like this hilarious shot of funnywoman Caitlin Gill). Let’s recount them.
Pinched Nerve. San Francisco musician who will be performing his song, “Back Door, Step Down!”
Jan Richman, author of Thrill-Bent, a new novel about roller coasters and Tourette’s syndrome.
Don’t forget to ready your stories for the audience-participation portion. You might just win a bag from San Francisco’s own Timbuk2, a $50 gift card to Tacolicious, or cool (temporary) tattoos from SFLocal.net.
We’ll have transit goodies for sale by Secession Art and Design, and everyone in our audience gets a special show discount on Muni Diaries shirts and wallets.
This is gonna be good. We can’t wait to see you there.
