Five Things presents: Cruelty!

For details on this event at Cheer Up Charlie's, please visit

From the event's Facebook page:

April is the cruelest month, Eliot said. Something about the seasons changing, breeding lilacs, "mixing memory and desire." April is rough—full o’ blues. Five Things knows that as well as anyone. And we're going to do something about it. 

Come join us for Callie and Adeena’s first show, a stirring tribute to our old friend, CRUELTY! We have so much to talk about. You don't have to suffer alone any longer.

Lose yourself in the dulcet tones of our brilliant readers: A Strange Object codirector and unnervingly talented human JILL MEYERS; hardest-hitting journalist and hometown superstar MAURICE CHAMMAH; one of Austin’s finest wits and wind beneath our wings SUSAN QUESAL; sly, attentive poet and handsome ginger CHARLIE CLARK; voice actor, improviser extraordinaire, and Five Things hero SHANNON MCCORMICK.

Drink the drinks and hug the hugs. Ponder callous indifference to or pleasure in causing pain and suffering. Let's take back April!
