An evening of funny and not-so-funny taxi stories and poems from three guys who have driven cab in Minneapolis. Here’s a bit about Scott Vetsch followed by a little about Hardy Coleman:
Scott Vetsch has bees in his bonnet, often hearing things wrong, which sometimes makes them right. He’s a carpenter who works in old houses, a child in a man’s body, a soul in exile. He likes a good story, whichever way it comes, loves cats and crows, inhabits worlds of his own making. He’s afraid things aren’t getting better, but hopes he’s mistaken. He burns wood, craves hamburgers, and eats tofu, scoffs at money, envies the contented, and drives a truck. When he’s happy he wants beer. When he’s sad, he wonders why. He knows one thing for certain, he’s a writer in a post-literate world.
Hardy Coleman drove taxi for 8 1/2 years, until Covid and skanky customers forced him to quit. (He did, however, get his wife driving cab.) He’s been writing stuff longer than that. He’s been making up stories since he was in grade school and needed a way to scare his younger brothers and sisters.
