The Shout

Second Monday of every month, 7:30 p.m.
510-922-1507

From a man whose family ended up in the Federal Witness Protection Program to a woman who once had a job caring for a fortune-telling chicken in Guinea Bissau to someone's unforgettable encounter with a bee on a golf course, the stories told at The Shout are the stuff of fiction, but drawn from real life. Much like The Moth StorySLAM events, The Shout is crowdsourced storytelling: Stories have few guidelines besides being true, less than ten minutes long, and worth the time it takes to tell the tale. Featured storytellers are selected beforehand, but audience members can put their names in a hat in hopes of sharing their own six-minute yarns. Join hosts Rami Margron and Cassidy Brown at Grand Lake Coffee House (440 Grand Ave., Oakland) on Monday, Jan. 14  -- and the second Monday of every month -- for some riveting tidbits of real life. 7:30-9:30 p.m., $5-20.
