The weather was weirdly warm for October, and the feelings at Tuesday Funk were warm as well. Did you miss it? Well, here's what happened.

Anne Abel led us off with a personal story about depression, family and a dying pet, and Jeff Phillips followed up with a supernatural story about his dad. Then Norman Doucet explained the state of political affairs through heavy metal lyrics.

We refilled our drinks, then settled back in for the second half with a micro-essay by cohost Eden Robins about her relationship with her grandmother. Tom Haley read posts from "Steve's Cooking Blog" and Ines Bellina had us laughing and commiserating about how much the dating life -- and the expectations and advice others have for their single friends -- sucks.

We will be back for a special Andersonville Arts Week edition of Tuesday Funk on Saturday, October 14, with readings by Kellye Howard, Karen Clanton, Aaron Cynic, Benjamin Goluboff, and Paul McComas & Maya Kuper. And then we'll be back to our usual first Tuesday with a show on November 7, featuring Parneshia Jones, Henri Harps, Melody Kamali, Gint Aras and Britt Julious. Hope to see you at both shows!
