Pecha Kucha Night
More than many, many things, I think Pecha Kucha certifies Milwaukee’s place in the constellation of great world cities, proving once again, on a regular schedule, that we’re home to lots of bright, enthusiastic, cosmopolitan professionals who care about ideas and learning and thinking and sharing with each other. Tonight’s third volume of Pecha Kucha Night (at Sugar Maple in Bay View, 441 E. Lincoln Ave.) is especially exciting for us at it includes presentations by two smart and talented and beautiful VITAL-ites: our Art Director, Bridget Brave, and senior music writer Erin Wolf. Also presenting: WMSE 91.7 FM’s handsome and affable promotions guru Ryan Schleicher; Tim Cigelske of Milwaukee Magazine and teecycle.org (recently shouted out in “Savage Love” — hot!); and installation artist kathryn e. martin, whose delicate floating structures are currently on display at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. Plus Taryn Roch, Jason Kennedy and Jason Gessner. And live jazz from Chicago! It’s that rare international phenomenon that showcases the best of what we grow at home.
See you there smart kids! Tonight at 8 pm!
