Downtown Social: Gotham Storytellers Rock Out

Written by Our Town Downtown on . Posted in Downtown Social, Our Town Downtown.

The first Gotham Storytelling Festival concluded Monday night after being postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. Six days of music and storytelling at Under St. Marks, a venue at the Horse Trade Theater, brought together dozens of authors, comics, musicians and just regular folks to share in the art of the story. Our Town Downtown was able to catch the last show with the BTK Band. “The hardest-drinking improvised storytelling rock band” in NYC rocked out in hilarious style, tossing candy into the audience, cracking wise to anyone and everyone, and accompanying audience members who came up to the stage to tell their stories—not to mention the smoking go-go dancers.
