It’s all Storytelling: A performance with humor songwriter & novelist, V.C. (Tori) Chickering. Tori will talk about her lyrics and novel writing process, interwoven with charming, witty original songs performed by her band, Tori Erstwhile & The Montys..Her latest novel, Twisted Family Values is a funny, provocative, and unpredictable four-generation tale of the secrets, forgiveness, and desires of a dysfunctional American family. Not necessary to have read the book to join in the fun. Sense of humor strongly recommended. Copies of the book will be available for sale.
The Montys perform catchy, original, laugh-out-loud funny songs across multiple genres: jazzy/bluegrass/indie-pop/American standard-esque, and some latin. Think Nellie McKay meets Flight of the Conchords. Adult themes. Lyric heavy. Always babysitter-worthy.
