US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

Open Mike (music, comedy, poetry)
Every Thursday at 6pm
The Template
5032 Niagara Avenue
San Diego, CA
Host: Myles Union and Eric Neilson
This open mic has 19 slots and are selected via a lottery system. There is a featured performer every week as well. Show up early (around 5:30pm) to put your name on a ticket, and place it in the polka-dotted top-hat located on stage. At 5:55pm, the host, Myles, pulls those tickets from the hat, and the artist writes their name on the list. Slots are filled in order of the names being picked. Attendance during ticket-pulling is mandatory. If person is not present when their name is called, then we hold on to it and keep it for next week. When the list fills up, Artists who do not get called will have their tickets saved for the following week. This increases the odds of being picked. After three consecutive weeks of not being selected, artists will receive a slot of their choice on week number four.
