Open Mic

Have fun. Support a Future Superstar.

Change up your usual evening out and take in a local Open Mic night.

At Open Mic you never know what you’re going to see and hear. There are some outstanding performers living right here at home. There are also some brave performers who are maybe not so outstanding. Whether you catch a rising star or not, you’ll see people who are passionate about their art and want to share that passion with you.

And there’s something for everyone. Comics. Poets. MCs. There’s bluegrass at the Mousetrap, jazz at the Jazz Kitchen and blues at the Slippery Noodle. And like the guy at the Melody Inn told me, “We’re open to pretty much anything, man.”
