This place used to have charm, atmosphere, a community feel and a few genuine weirdos here and there for flavor (part of the atmosphere). I was there at the open mic a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at what I saw. The space itself has changed for the worse and everything good about it is no longer there. There used to be as many as 25 or more acts on any given Friday. When I went, there were about 6 and the weirdos have taken over. Used to have a great host and now the owner, Pam (who I love and admire) is hosting and she is just so out of her element. Sadly, I won't be coming back. Total waste of time.

Do I have to sign up ahead of time if I want to play? I'm coming in from out of town that week and would love to play on your open mic night. Thx!

A very unique and beautiful diverse beatnik crowd, unique and diverse not just in characters, also music. Mostly a music gig. Good sound system if the person knows how to do it. such a diverse and beautiful crowd unlike anywhere else in town. A very good choice. Easy to make friends there.
