Presumed Suspended Due To Covid-19 Closures
April 9, 2020
We're assuming that most, if not all, of the non-virtual Open Mikes listed on this site are on hold for now. Rather than encourage anyone to go out for no good reason, we're marking all Open Mikes on-hold until we hear otherwise from the listing owners.
For three years running, The R.E.C. Life (Royaltie Entertainment Company) has hosted the best poetry jam session in New York City! "The Poet WILL Be Televised!" will it's monthly poetic jam session on the second Wednesday of each month, at 8PM at Harlem's Silvana!
Hosted by hip-hop artist Baxter P Wordsworth, "The Poet WILL Be Televised" pays homage to Gil Scott Heron, iconic for the world-renowned poem "The Revolution Will Not be Televised." We allow poets, spoken word and hip hop artists, and neo-soul singers to come together with a live band to improvise their written word in a new, fresh way.
If you would like to perform during the open mic, please remember, TRACKS ARE NOT PERMITTED AT THIS EVENT! The live band will be happy to assist you in any musical stylings you may desire.
