US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians


Open Mic of the Republic (music, comedy, poetry)
Every Sunday at 9pm
6939 Laurel Ave
Takoma Park, MD
We just kicked the night off in February so we're still finding our legs but the rough breakdown is something like this : 2nd and 4th Sundays except for when it's not (Republic has had to fit some things in next month, so we'll have open mic on March 2nd and 23rd, then in April hopefully settle into the regular rhythm). Signup at pm, performances from 9 to midnight. 2 pieces / 10 minutes whichever's shorter. Live webcast. No amps or drumkits please. Full PA, full menu, jam encouraged at the end of the night. See you there!

? Hello, my group would like to preform at this event. Is it still running? If so, what genres are accepted? Thank you

I'm no longer the host for the evening, so the references are no longer relevant. Thanks!

Hi, I was wondering if doing comedy at the open mic was cool. If so, what time do you start?

Thanks, Nelson

This one can be a little confusing but bear with me! Republic has open mic every Sunday night - signup at 8.30pm, performances from 9 - midnight. That's stable (though call ahead, because even that can be supplanted by special events). I host on 2nd and 4th Sundays and run things as 2 songs / 10 minutes whichever's up first, no amps or drumkits. However, on other Sundays the format is generally pretty variable.
