Open Mic at the LyceumThe first Friday of every month (usually)*.
Dates for upcoming Open Mic nights are posted at the bottom of the home page.
Doors at 8:00PM; Mic at 8:30PM
An open mic experience that is both intimate and communal. We start off the evening socializing. It is this aspect that sets us apart: the intimacy factor. We gather in a comforting space with good food and drink (yes, that includes wine, cheese, and chocolate). We listen to great music and get to know each other. Many great conversations happen.
We then fire up the spotlight and perform for each other. It is like going to watch a really great variety show, except the performers are all your friends and you don't need back stage passes to talk to them afterwards.
Our stage is open to any art from. On any given night you can expect to hear poetry, music, storytelling, monologues, stand-up comedy...anything your imagination can dream up!
$6 Cover. $4 Beverages. Check out the Open Mic's Youtube Channel!
