The FBomb is Fproud to present our August featured reader: Poet/Professor/Bluebird Reality Traveler Jonathon Montgomery. Hosted by Rob Geisen. 3-4 minute open mic slots available until they’re no long available. Show up a little early and sign up at the Roxy (down in the Speakeasy Basement) before showtime (6 PM). This month’s theme will be THE FUTURE!
“Greetings, my friends! We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friends; future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown, the mysterious, the unexplainable; that is why you are here. And now for the first time we are bringing to you the full story of what happened on that faithful day. We are giving you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimonies of the miserable souls who survived this terrifying ordeal.” –Criswell
