21 years and over
Talented writers/performers/bloggers tell original stories about their first city and have songs about those experiences performed immediately by "The First Time" band -- Steve Frisbie, Liam Davis and Gerald Dowd.
The theme is First Time: First City. Performers write/read original pieces around the First City theme and pick songs to accompany their pieces. A live band -- "The First Time Three," featuring former members of Frisbie (Steve Frisbie, Liam Davis and Gerald Dowd) perform their songs immediately following the reading in a stripped down, acoustic setting.
