COME ENJOY A LIVE FULLCAST FOR THE ONLY APPROPRIATE PRICE: FREE

NCAA Football: Indiana at Michigan
MICHIGAN FANS IT’S A LIBRARY YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO BE THERE ON A FRIDAY NIGHT ANYWAY
Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

HELLO, CHILDREN. Summer is the the time most smart people go to the beach. That’s why we’re going to the lakes — THE GREAT LAKES, that is, both because we can’t really do much right around here, and also because the University of Michigan won the 2019 EDSBS Charity Bowl.

This earned Michigan the prize (?!?!?) of a free Fullcast hosted in their very own backyard of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The planning has been hectic and full of surprises, but most of those have been the pleasant kind, and not the And Then About 25 Snakes Came Out kind.

It’s happening, is what we’re saying, and you’re invited to attend for the low entry cost of absolutely nothing.

VIA HOLLY:

Here’s what you need to know (and if you’re a conference call donor who opted in for a show ticket, check your email for details on the extra goodies we have planned for you):

1. Somehow, the show is happening as scheduled. June 21, 2019, 7-9 pm. That’s very soon!

2. We’re doing the show in a library. Really. The Downtown branch of the Ann Arbor District Library has graciously offered to host us and all you monsters for the evening. PURE MICHIGAN. We’ll decamp to a nearby bar afterwards for drinks and socializing, location TBA.

3. THIS IS WHERE THINGS GET WEIRD. It’s library policy that we can’t charge our audience for tickets, because, well, public library, so the show will be FREE AND OPEN TO ALL. Bring your friends. Charitable causes! Soccer merchandise at a football podcast! SHUTTING DOWN THE PUBLIC LIBRARY ON A FRIDAY NIGHT IN THE DEAD-ASS MIDDLE OF SUMMER. This is our love for you. See you soon.

See? Weird, wonderful, good, and at the exact price point the Fullcast deserves. Also the Fullcast has gone live in three locations, and two of them so far have been a.) a public library and b.) an art museum. We’re not culture, but we are definitely something that grows on culture, and probably needs to be removed with powerful antibiotics.
