It's baaaack! Mary Hamilton and Lindsay Hunter's popular reading series, once held at the Inner Town Pub, comes to the Hideout for one night only. Short attention span? Then you'll dig the format: Quickies demands brevity of its participants (each reader is allotted four minutes) and adherence to the rules (violators are whistled/heckled off stage). NO POETRY! NO EXCERPTS! NO CHEATING! In addition to the fearless hosts, tonight's readers include Kyle Beachy, Tobias Bengelsdorf, Aaron Burch, Zach Dodson, Natalie Edwards, Mary Hamilton, Jac Jemc, Jonathan Messinger, Jill Summers, Chris Terry and Matt Trupia.
