We’ll Always Have Aliens: My Boyhood Pal Grew Up to Be a Master Tale-Spinner

What a treat and a privilege it was to catch up with my boyhood pal Jeff Simmermon so I could write about his return to DC to bring his storytelling series And I Am Not Lying (an offshoot of his eponymous, very amusing blog) to the Black Cat.

Appearing on a bill with his storytelling pals Brad Lawrence and Cyndi Freeman (she also performed her burlesque act), Jeff told expanded versions of this story, which I hadn’t heard before, and this one, which I had, when it was on The Moth podcast. But his live version was longer and better, like the version of “Midnight Rambler” on Get Your Ya-Yas Out versus the tamer studio take on Let It Bleed.
