Open Mic Night

Thursday, October 21
8:00pm - 10:00pm
Terrace, MSC
Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Come on out, again, for our second Open Mic of the Fall Semester! Whether you are just looking to vibe or want an inclusive, supportive environment to test out anything you're working on, you'll find it there. Please be aware that this show can be mature in content, most everything is allowed as long as it is not hatefully punching down, and anything that can be construed as not supportive of the folks courageous enough to get on the stage will not be tolerated.

The Open Mic sign-ups will run from 7:00PM to 8:00PM with the show starting once the sign-up period is over. Anyone is encouraged to sign up and if they get the jitters and don't want to follow through they will always be respected and protected. Cheers and see you there.
