Original songs and instrumentals are encouraged, but not required. (It was "originals only" for the first few years after we started in January 2000. I've since abandoned that rule to quit disappointing the uninitiated, and to be more consistent with the Barking Spider's other open mic which falls on the 4th Tuesday.)

First Tues is all originals, fourth tuesday is open to everyone. I don't do originals so I go the fourth Tuesday.
