A little closer to HumCo's population hubs are a pair of spoken word-ish events. First, local raconteur Jeff DeMark leads a cadre of storytellers for a makeshift variety show inside Dell'Arte's Big Hammer Tent titled Acting on a Dream: Summer Stories, Songs and Wild Left Turns. Elsewhere, Jambalaya hosts nationally syndicated progressive talk radio host and occasional standup Karel who promises a "non-stop assault on the senses." Guard your senses, kids.
