Midwest Storytellers' Tour: Grand Rapids, MI

At The Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters: 758 Wealthy St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Tom Hymn unwraps the costume of evening and welcomes guests—ghouls, soccer moms, hip kids who hang out in bars, uncles wishing they were younger, cats, and musicians and listeners alike—with his unique music (said to be "slinky folk punk") and his handsome as well as easy-going stage presence. This will change your life for 20 minutes after which the music will be joined by Z.G. Tomaszewski—rambler at 4 o'clock, lover of antipasto, poet, and imaginary bossa nova musician. Z.G. will read his own sonic scrambles alongside the dashing Tom Hymn's guitar melodies. Then a brief, unrehearsed and exceptional introduction to Tyler Dunning, grim master and fable craftsman. Tyler will tell tall tales and maybe even cast a few spells. Afterwards, to usher in the goblins of night, Tom Hymn will play the softest, most tender death metal ever created. Bring your wands and wigs and beverages if you dare to alchemize.
