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.
An open mic that includes extended featured performers invited to play for 30 minutes or more who emerged from the open mic.
Our participants include experienced artists as well as first-timers and emerging performers. Our purpose is to make a place where performers and writers can be guaranteed a place to be heard and supported as they develop over time. The community of listeners is always welcoming of new people, and well supported by long time regulars.
A performance slot is 10 minutes (or two songs). The performance order is determined at random by pulling names from a fishbowl. Audience members are encouraged to stay for the entire event and to be attentive and support the room as a performance space.
There is a house sound system with 3 microphones and additional capacity to plug guitars with pick-ups directly into the system.
