? I am heading into the city tonight. I was wondering if this open mic was still on. If so is the vibe religious in nature or can you before any time of music?

There is a piano, but it not well maintained.

No drums. Electric guitars or amplified acoustics run through the sound board. Music, comedy, poetry encouraged. Rap, not so much.

Eclectic, friendly atmosphere.
