Wonder & Awe Productions + Highland Park Bowl present Weekly Musician's Open Mic

THE RUN DOWN:

This is a weekly event happening every Tuesday of the month unless otherwise announced.

SIGN UPS: sign ups BEGIN AT 7:30pm and END at 8:15pm sharp. Visit the bar inside Mr. T's room, order a drink or food to support the venue, grab a number from the bartender, then bring that number to the host and we'll get you all signed up! (THROUGHOUT THE EVENING PLEASE ONLY ORDER DRINKS AND FOOD FROM THE BAR INSIDE MR. T'S/THE STAGE ROOM)

There will be a MAXIMUM of 35 people that will be able to sign up each week. Come early! DEPENDING ON THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE THAT SIGN UP, each person that signs up will get to play 1 song/5 mins or possibly 2 songs/8 mins (very rare). Please know the length of your songs BEFORE arriving to be sure that your time on stage (including your song, plugging in and packing up, and talking) stays within the maximum time limit. Thank you in advance for understanding!

OPEN MIC and FEATURED ARTIST: the open mic will then begin AT 8:20pm-ish or as soon as I can start the show! The night is a random, pull out of the jar process so that who is up next will be a surprise. So be prepared to play at any moment. And don't worry. I'll still be sure to share who is in the hole, who is on deck, and who is up next to take the stage.

The Open Mic will be split into two halves sandwiching the featured artist's yumminess in the middle.

open mic FIRST HALF: 8:30pm to 10:00pm

FEATURED ARTIST: 10:00pm to 10:25pm

open mic SECOND HALF: 10:30pm to 12:00am

Please BRING YOUR OWN GUITAR. We often have a keyboard backlined for the whole evening each week. If we ever don’t we post it in the website listed above.

WE WILL PROVIDE: 2 D.I. boxes, two 1/4" cables, 3 mics with stands and cables. Please keep in mind this is an ACOUSTIC driven night focused on songs. Hand percussion is totally cool but NO DRUM KIT AND NO LARGE AMPS AND NO COMPLICATED TIME CONSUMING SETUPS allowed. You may perform to a back
