11:00am, $5


In conjunction with the Locust Street Festival of Music and Art, local performance artist and poet Anja Notanja Sieger will present a room full of answers. Receive an advice consultation on one problem from 30 different wise poets each specializing in a different kind of advice such as "Flirty,” “Yiddish,” “Financial,” "Homesteading," "Outer Space," "Bhuddist," "Cheesy," "Truest Self," "Beatlemaniac," "Numerology" and much, much more!


Sieger, who is organizing the event, previously presented her first Advice Tent last year at the Milwaukee Fringe Festival and it was attended by 423 people with problems. Intending to improve the experience for both participants and advisors a Kickstarter has been created to raise funds to support these local poets as well as to release a printed book of the best of the questions and advice gathered. The Advice Tent Kickstarter will end on Tuesday, June 6th, at 11:01pm.
