Poetry Night – like the moon

May 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

WHAT IS THE ATMOSPHERE/ENVIRONMENT LIKE?
We believe “like the moon” Open Mic Night has been so successful due to the incredibly welcoming, friendly, supportive, fun environment and people. It’s a great community of artists and performers and fans. We can’t wait to meet newcomers and welcome them to the bar!  So come on out – our friendly staff and regulars are looking forward to hearing your art!

IS IT FREE TO ATTEND AND/OR PLAY OPEN MIC NIGHT?
Yes, absolutely.

IS THE OPEN MIC NIGHT FOR ALL AGES?
Yes.  15+ can attend, and under 18 can attend with an adult.  All ages are welcome to perform.

HOW LONG DO I GET TO PERFORM?
At the moment, the set times are 7-10 minutes each, which is on average about 2 songs. Performances happen between 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm.  Usually, when signing up you choose your time slot, so you are always able to spread the word to friends/fans/family as to exactly when you’ll hit the stage.  You are not required to be present at the venue except to sign up, and to perform.  We ask that you please be on-site 30 minutes leading up to your scheduled set time, though.
We ask that full bands be prepared to take the final slot of the night, if available – as setup/changeover time for bands is much longer.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR MY PERFORMANCE?
In general, whatever you want – and yourself!  If you play acoustic guitar, bring your guitar, instrument cable (if it’s acoustic/electric), tuner, picks – basically what you would need to perform in any other normal situation on your own.  If you are performing to tracks, you will need to provide an iPod/MP3 player or cd player to play your music on or you can send your song to the DJ of the night. You do not need to bring microphones or PA gear – we’ve got you covered there.  We also allow full bands to set up, but you will need to bring your own amps, drums, etc.  We always have our 88-key upright piano on stage and available to you as well.
