Fri December 16 at 8:00 PM
Come for a short session of stand-up, interactive improv and music brought to you by two very talented MeFites - brainwane and Reeya Banerjee.
It's Week 4 of MetaFilter Events! Go to our EventBrite page and click on the big red button to get your ticket - $10, or apply for a randomly allocated sponsored ticket.

brainwane is a tech project manager and writer that performs stand-up comedy about tech, scifi fandom, and similar topics - and she'll present stand-up comedy about life on the modern web, with some material on MetaFilter culture and dynamics.

Reeya, a musician and longtime bar band veteran, released her debut album of original music this past January, and has 2 new singles out this month. She'll give a short talk about her album, her creative process and play her new single.

There will also be an improv game called "Podguessing", conceived of and facilitated by brainwane. (Guess what obscure podcasts are about based on their names!)
