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.

Benchmark on Davie street is not open mic It is just a dj throwing on rap crap and some of his buddies that talk in unison if the rap track

  They did have a "REAL" musician singer songwriter ,guitarist hosting before , very talented philipino guy , but the owner "Mark" kept pestering the host to turn down the volume ! 
  It was not destined to be a real open mic as the middle eastern owner is too controlling and keeps constantly harassing the host about volume or genre played , I as a great vocalist saw this as well my Friend hosted his karsoke there on a different night and this "mark" asshole kept driving my Freind crazy to turn down the already melow volume and also dictating he play stupid "rap" 

The guy "Mohammad" I mean "Mark" is a cobttol freak that artists of any true musicianship or true vocalists will want to steer clear of this place ! My friend hosting karaoke night quit on him due to not leaving him alone to actuate the job he was hired to do ! ANTONIO
