Dog Days of Summer Part Deux: more human tales of canine companions

Featuring stories by
• Ben Atkins
• Lindsay Lee
• Sarah Spooner
• Waylon and more (maybe you)

Hosted by Tom Chalmers

After a successful show at The Orange Peel last week, Listen to This, stories on stage, returns to 35 Below with the second installment of Dog Days of Summer: human tales of canine companions. Some themes are too big for one show, just like some dogs are too big for one lap. Asheville loves dogs. In fact, if you ever find yourself without cash in Asheville, just travel with a dog in tow around town and you will get food and water wherever you go. People love talking about dogs. And talk and talk. We will look to prove that point again with a different lineup of doggie anecdotes. Featuring stories by Ben Atkins, Lindsay Lee, Sarah Spooner, Waylon Wood and more. Maybe you could be part of that more as attendees will be invited to share a snippet of their most remarkable dog memories. Hosted by Tom Chalmers. Thursday, July 28th, at 7:30 PM at 35 Below (back behind Asheville Community Theatre), 35 E. Walnut Street, Asheville, NC 28801. Tickets are $15 and do tend to sell out. Once again, a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. For tickets, call (828) 254-1320, go to, or visit the ACT box office. Now you go and get those tickets, get em! That’s a good audience.
