This is a very busy open mic and instead of being first-come, first-served, it’s lottery style, you put your name in a jar and they draw 15 names. If you don’t get picked that week, your name stays in the jar for the next week’s draw, so you can enter again and get two chances.
There is a sound tech, PA, mic, speakers, acoustic guitar, no amps, no drums supplies. You will have about 10 minutes (or 1-2 songs) on stage, please make sure your set up is fairly simple.
Mostly singer/songwriters, some duos and trios. Open to comedy, poetry, etc.
Cover is $2-5 (PWYC) Talk to your host before you start if you have any questions about set-up or e-mail us!
