THIS OPEN MIC IS GREAT AGAIN! Brandon Cummings is a great host and the sound system is perfect! It is well worth your time to come out and perform! Lots of support from Kafein's staff and the other musicians! I've been to the last 4 in a row - all were fun for all. -Thomas (04/18/14)

Awful. The host was great. That's where it ended

It's not the worst-- but can be kind of a joke. The staff is super iffy, sometimes really interesting and sometimes tired, bored twenty-somethings. You'dd probably leave with a story to tell about, for instance, a guy who tried really hard to do an 80's rap-punk-r&b crossover thing… You may be lucky enough to hear an actually funny comedian, or you may come on an average Monday, where you'll hear a lot of wannabe's. It's not awful, but definitely go with someone.

Have been several times, while the people aren't there to listen, that can be a good learning experience for a musician or comedian, we'll all get inattentive audiences at somepoint… time to wow them.
