East Bay Meeting House
This is Charleston's longest running show of poetry and music. Now in our 13th year, it takes place every Monday barring major holidays. The show starts with a featured poet or, sometimes, musician who reads for 45 minutes. That reading is followed by open mic. Open mic participants have a 2 poem, 2 song, or 6 minute limit -- whichever comes first. Those wishing to read or perform at open mic must sign up before the feature starts. We host nationally known poets with books in print. If you would like to be the featured reader, please contact Jim Lundy at firstname.lastname@example.org. The ratio of poetry to music in the open mic is typically 3 to 1 and musicians are featured about 10 times per year. Musicians who would like to feature must perform only original music.
