Description: UP Comedy Club hosts CHIRP Radio's monthly live performance "First Time" series. The First Time series is a night of words and music. Readers write original pieces around a "first time" theme -- this time, it's First Crime. Each reader selects a song to accompany their piece; immediately following their reading, a live band performs their song in a stripped-down setting.
The First Time Three (Steve Frisbie, Liam Davis, and Gerald Dowd) have performed together and alone on stages throughout the country and bring a unique blend of styles and vocals to any genre of songs the readers select. They have performed songs for the series by the Misfits, Nas, Sinead O'Connor, Huey Lewis and the News, Prince, Van Morrison, and countless other artists spanning all eras and genres.
This is the series' third anniversary, and the featured readers are:
minutes no intermission.
