July 2006 Archives

Check out Don Makoviney's article "Songwriters, try an Open Mic Tour" at BloggingMuses.com. Good stuff, and not just because he points out the openmikes.org "I'll Be There" feature as a way to do this. :-)

Julie Pinsonneault's article in Making Music magazine, "The Other Side of the Mountain", is out now. She looks at open mikes from the point of view of conquering new territory, overcoming fears, etc. I'm quoted briefly at the end:

"I think an open mike is a more forgiving and friendly environment as opposed to paid gigs or contests," said Roub. "There's an understanding that you're not Dave Matthews."

I'm sure that's what I said, although probably in a less-coherent form before editing. Kinda funny example for me to pick, though, as (a) I'm not really a big fan of DMB and (b) is there a more-covered artist at open mikes?
