Tonight's feature is G.G. Tanaka (http://www.myspace.com/theggtanakaelectricband), who will perform in the 6th slot.
All performers are welcome to participate in this event that has produced some of our brightest performers, including: Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS! One unique aspect of our Open Mic is that, unlike those held in noisy bars where people show up in spite of the fact that there's live music, you will be playing to a supportive group of friends and performers who are actually listening!!!
The sign-up begins at 7:30, when the doors open. However, people with advance tickets get let in first, so they have first dibs on the list. People often start lining up as early as 7, some even come before 7 to get an advance ticket before the box office closes (at 7). Tickets are $4.50 in advance, $5.50 at the door, even if you are performing.
EXCEPTION: Any performer showing up with a paying, non-performing member of the audience plays for free!!! Note: you must show up together to take advantage of this offer.
Solo performers get to play one song, groups get to play two songs. Management reserves the right to occasionally award a performer with an extra song, for any reason management deems appropriate.
BONUS: Anyone, performers and audience alike, staying until the end of the night is entitled to a FREE TICKET to an upcoming Freight show of their choice. This is a great deal, considering the Freight's normal ticket prices. Shows that are sold out or close to being sold out are excluded from this offer.
