mentioned before that one of Uptown's hidden gems takes place every Saturday at the Green Mill at 3pm: Paper Machete, a live current events magazine that its founder describes as "part spoken-word show, part vaudeville revue." Free, weekly, and fun!
This Saturday, there's even more reason to attend: Julia Sweeney, actress/author/comedian, will be the headliner in a Mother's Day Edition of the show.
Founder Christopher Piatt tells us: "Julia Sweeney is headlining this Saturday's Paper Machete. It should be a totally hot show; the lineup of non-famous talent is also excellent. And the show is still 100% FREE!"
If you haven't checked out the Machete before, this is a really good opportunity to see what's going on behind the green velvet drapes.
