What did you miss at last month's inaugural edition of Pictures of Fireworks? Me telling a story about nearly having my neck broken by a crowdsurfer at a Hoobastank concert at Riverfront Park in 2002, that's what. And while the ship has sailed on hearing that personal indignity told out loud, tonight's show promises stories about doomsday cults, true tales from southeastern Tennessee and more.

Hosted by local author/comic Jane Borden — who recently appeared as a guest on the Totally Laime podcast — Pictures of Fireworks is a monthly storytelling show held in the back of Fido, where invited guests and total randos alike have an opportunity to tell true stories to total strangers. Here's the official deets:

Pictures of Fireworks is dedicated to finding the funniest, most compelling, touching, and outrageous tales in Nashville. All that's required from each teller is honesty. Share your darkest secrets. Express the momentous or mundane. Your tales only need to be true, and to have a beginning, middle, and end. (Booked tellers get 8 minutes; audience members have 4. No scripts allowed, you fraidy cat.)

This month's show features stories by Sewanee ecology professor Devan McGranahan, east side author Chuck Beard, stand-up Donna Carter and Corporate Juggernaut's Gary Fletcher. The show is free and starts at 8 p.m. in Fido. Just follow the signs to the back room.
