The Blue Umbrella Tour

Just as the sun went down, the Blue Umbrella Tour kicked in. This was a walking tour of Downtown Knoxville where comedians told an improvised ghost story about the various structures and places they passes on the tour.

Jackie Kashian headlined Scruffy City Hall at 8pm

Jackie Kashian really had a great turnout of fans for her performance last night at Scruffy City Hall. The crowd went with her no matter where she went. My favorite quote from the evening “My husband and I decided not to have kids, but instead to go to Paris.. Because.. Well, We are still going to Paris, fuck those guys.” The crowd erupted and we couldn’t have been luckier to have her at our festival.
