I've been to this open mic several times. The intimacy is wonderful. The host is extremely down to earth and a remarkable guitarist with a great voice. When it gets perfectly crowded, it's my favorite open mic, even more so than the really popular one in Arlington, VA. It's a dive bar atmosphere with a rinky-dink stage. In fact, I think they no longer use the stage. Last time I went, they just put the mic on the floor, which was better. Get there before eight and you don't have to pay a cover of $5 for the band downstairs. I think they advertise starting at 8, but they seem to start at 9. It's a cavernous dive worth exploring if you're from out of town. Have fun singing and playing.

Hey all - my band recently played at this open mic. It was a great time. Check out the in depth review of the open mic on our blog!

Incredible talent showed up Tuesday 7.2.13. I was stunned. The day of the open mic has been switched to Wednesday, which now puts it in direct competition with the super popular open mic at the I shall not name venue in Arlington. But I'm starting to like this open mic much better. It has a more organic, friendlier feel. It's probably rare that such an array of talent could assemble in one night at an open mic as happened last Tuesday, but I hope it happens again. May the stars align themselves a second time.
