Modern-times-style Open mic at Bump 'n Grind

David Fogel has graciously agreed to allow us to use the space that night for the standard-faire open mic that everyone so much enjoyed in the past. I will provide a smallish PA and mixer on battery to help with vocals or your instrument if it needs amplification.

7:30 signups, 8 pm performing until 10.

Y'all keep coming to play and listen, and I will keep hosting on the 3rd Friday of each month. Everyone needs more wonderful creative performances in their lives. - Josh
