Wits

November’s MSP Audio Geeks Meetup is on Thursday, November 20 at 2pm. This is a special event, hosted by Corey Schreppel of Minnesota Public Radio | American Public Media.

We will start the afternoon off at the Fitzgerald Theater to sit in on a rehearsal for the popular show Wits. After the rehearsal we’ll have the chance to discuss some of the elements that go into running a live show, as well as the workflow involved in recording and broadcasting a live performance. We will then walk over to the MPR studios for a tour.

From the website: Wits is a live public radio show that brings world-class comedians, actors and musicians to the stage where host John Moe gives them and the audience the time of their lives. Wits mixes improv, sketch comedy, conversation, music and genuine beauty in a program praised as “one of the rare public radio comedy shows that’s actually funny” (Huffington Post) and “on course to become a national hit” (USA Today).

The rehearsal will be for the show on Friday, November 21 featuring actor Keegan-Michael Key and musical guest Bhi Bhiman. The show starts at 8pm and you can purchase tickets through Ticketmaster or by calling the Fitzgerald Theater at 651-290-1200. There are special discounts for MPR members and for Wits Social Club members.

Attendance is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis. You must RSVP at http://Nov2014mspaudiogeeks.eventbrite.com to attend this event!

We will still stay on the east side of the river for June’s meetup. Tin Whiskers Brewing is a brand new brewery & tap room in the Rossmor Building in Downtown St. Paul. Since they are a tap room, you are welcome to order food from neighboring restaurants Black Sheep PizzaSawatdee, or Key’s Café. You can also bring your leftovers!

Invite your friends and join us for a night of geeky audio conversation. Please RSVP to mspaudiogeeks [at] gmail [dot] com if you are planning to attend.
