Got open mics?

Thursday night is the monthly Blind Date with Poetry at Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe. Michael Beadle is the featured poet. Blind Date with Poetry begins at 6:30 PM with a thirty-minute open mic (be there by 6 PM if you want to read because the sign up list fills quickly) and concludes with the featured poet reading from his or her work.

There's another weekly open mic. . .
Thursday nights at Courtyard Gallery & Studio, from 8 to 11 PM hosted by Jarrett Leone. Sign up starts at 7:30 PM. For all the beautiful souls who used to attend Beanstreets (before it expired) and Indigenous (before it went the way of the buffalo), Courtyard Open Mic is the place to be.

Last week I heard a preview of Fringe Arts Festival, a maestro guitarist play a cover of an Arcade Fire and didge players performing their single-note drones. Several poets were in attendance as well.

Thanks for the heads-up. I hope to be at the courtyard tonight. DM
