The Moth GrandSLAM Championship  at the Kentucky Center

The Moth presents the GrandSLAM, a battle of wits and words—fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking and all points between. Listen as ten StorySLAM champs tell tales of being out of their element: the freak, the foreigner, dressed for the opera at the clambake, out of the loop, the only person in the loop, the voice of dissent, the lonely fool. Outsider, interloper, odd man out. The black sheep, the chatty monk, the juror with a doubt.

Feb. 1, 8 p.m.
Kentucky Center's Bomhard Theater

The Jaystorm Project at Phoenix Hill Tavern

Within the first 30 seconds of “Reddy 2 Ride,” a smokin’ hot track on The Jaystorm Project’s latest release A Brand New Funk: The EP, you’re already knee deep in high-energy rock/bluesy funk greatness. Fronted by Jaystorm – a Tennessee-native and rising favorite Southern bluesy, funk, hip-hop son – his latest musical incarnation as The Jaystorm Project, The Jaystorm Project serves up a backing band and a booty-shakin’ style that accentuates his strong, but yet smooth delivery of slick witty lyrics and bluesy funk sound that is part Motown, part old school hip-hop, with an edge of rock which leaves you with total musical genius.
