The Narrators returns with real-life storytelling at the Deer Pile

After a hiatus, The Narrators is back. The monthly evening of truth- telling was started two years ago by writer and comedian Andrew Orvedahl at Paris Wine Bar (his efforts earned Orvedahl a MasterMind); he has now enlisted his friend and Narrators regular Robert Rutherford to co-host -- and moved the night to the Deer Pile community space above City, O' City.

We recently spoke with Rutherford -- a fellow writer and one-time member of local bands Everything Absent or Distorted and Rabbit Is a Sphere -- about the re-vamping of the popular narrative night. Though Rutherford stresses that the Narrators is really "Andrew's baby," he gave a little background on the show, which is now all-ages, free and happening on the third Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. Which means tomorrow night.
