With all of the amazingly talented and wonderful people in this city, it would be silly not to have an open mic in Echo Park! So we bring you, The Lost Knight Musicians' Open Mic! with the intentions of bringing community together, connecting people, creating a comfortable, cool, creative environment for people to share in, and sharing in the fun over some delicious food and quenching beverages!
The run down:
SIGN UPS: sign ups begin AT 8:00pm and go until 8:30pm. Visit the main Tap Room bar, order a drink or food, grab a ticket from the bartender, then come visit me near the sound booth, I'll snag your ticket, and we'll get you all signed up!
There will be a MAXIMUM of 20 people that will be able to sign up each week. Come early! Each person that signs up will get to play 2 songs/8 minutes (no epic 10 minute single song metal adventure ballads please!) ;-)
OPEN MIC and FEATURED ARTIST: the open mic will then begin at 8:30pm with a random, pull out of the jar process so that who is up next will be a surprise. So be prepared to play at any moment. And don't worry. I'll still be sure to share who is up next and who is on deck. :-)
The Open Mic will be split into two halves sandwiching the featured artist's yumminess in the middle.
open mic FIRST HALF: 8:30pm to 10:00pm
FEATURED ARTIST: 10:00pm to 10:30pm
open mic SECOND HALF: 10:35pm to 12:00am
Please bring your own instruments/guitars/keyboards. We will provide: 2 D.I. boxes, two 1/4" cables, 3 mics with stands and cables. Please keep in mind this is an ACOUSTIC driven night. Hand percussion is totally cool, however, the back-lined instruments on stage will not be used during the open mic at this time. Thank you in advanced for understanding!
FEATURED ARTIST: Each week there will be one featured artist showcased and sharing their goodness from 10:00pm to 10:30pm.
