Dire Memories, Pop Culture, What was big on the night of Dire Literary Series #1?

 Tonight is Dire Series #179 and it's the 15th Anniversary of the Series.

Some Facts:
1) We've never been snowed out. Though today we're getting 6-10 inches, it's going to stop at 3 PM and we will be open.

2) I've never missed an evening because of sickness,  traveling, or had a substitute host for any of them, although some of them I may may or not have been there. Blackouts were ROOOOUGH.

The series started at The Cantab on the first Tuesday of every month, February 6, 2001. Lasted two months


 For the next 177 months, after a month off, the series moved The Out of the Blue Art Gallery and has stayed there. The gallery has moved twice since...

168 Brookline Ave until September 2002
106 Prospect St until October 2014
and now at 541 Massachusetts Ave,
