US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

Presumed Suspended Due To Covid-19 Closures

April 9, 2020

We're assuming that most, if not all, of the non-virtual Open Mikes listed on this site are on hold for now. Rather than encourage anyone to go out for no good reason, we're marking all Open Mikes on-hold until we hear otherwise from the listing owners.

We welcome storytelling, spoken word, and stand-up. Anything between 5 and 12 minutes is fine -- we'll ring a bell at 10 minutes to let you know your time is almost up. We charge our usual sliding scale donation of $10-20 dollars, but if you're telling a tale and you bring at least one friend as you enter, you can get in for just $5. (Sorry to charge you at all, but without selling beer and wine we need money to pay down our bills and stay alive… )

SIgn up is between 7:00 (when doors first open) and 7:30 (when the show begins). Depending on the number of participants, we've been known to go around more than once!

We work to create a warm and supportive environment and we love welcoming first-timers. These events have featured many brand new performers -- as well as some widely known storytellers, spoken word artists, and comedians. On a given night you just never know who may turn up!
