Open mics come and go, and we can't keep on top of them all by ourselves.

It's a good idea to call the venue first and make sure it's still open.

Help us out -- Submit a new open mic or tell us about a dead one at changes (AT) openmicvancouver (DOT) com

Don't forget to read the comments at the bottom of the page. Someone may have reported a new or closed open mic there too.
