Ruby Deluxe

Open Mic Night 18+ (music, comedy, poetry)
Every Monday at 8pm

Hosted by Kae Diaz, Celeste Jones

415 South Salisbury Street
Raleigh, NC


Open to all! Come experience a safe place to showcase your talent and/or get some practice performing in front of others. Performances are open to music, poetry, prose, comedy, spoken word, theatre, and movement that fit within the parameters of our available time and space.

We will have 2 mics and 2 direct inputs available. We won’t have any instruments backlined. Bring your instrument! To make sure everyone gets a chance to get on stage we ask that you perform for as close to 10-12 (or less) minutes as possible. If it is a slow night for sign-ups the hosts may ask you if you'd like to do another song. Come ready to quickly set up and break down! If you have questions, please let us know beforehand by posting here in the event page or coming as close to 8PM as possible to figure out what you will need.

Here’s how it’s gonna go:

1. Get there. Sign-up will be open at 8PM.

2. Find the sign-up sheet! There will be no signing up before the doors open at 8PM. Sign-up will continue through the event, but we can’t guarantee you a spot if it fills up.

3. We will start no later than 10PM. The sooner people arrive and sign up, the sooner we can begin performances.

4. Wait until your name is called by our badass host, Celeste Jones!

5. Get up there and do your thing! Keep it 10-12mins ok?? You’re gonna do great! If it's a slow night for sign-ups we may ask you if you'd like to go longer~ this is up to the hosts.

6. Now you have the chance to support your budding, magical, local community by grabbing a seat and being the audience member that someone else had been for you :)

Open mic is a vulnerable experience for many folks so we ask that while you’re in the audience you please check yourself to see if you are being conscious of the space you are taking up. No heckling. Hateful behavior of any kind will not be tolerated.

Please message us with any questions you may have! Let us know how we can help :)

Can’t wait to see what you wanna share, friends!
