Open Spike Night - Songwriters' Social & Potluck (music, comedy, poetry)
Selected Tuesdays at 7pm
Pignic Pub & Patio
235 Flint St
Reno, NV

In celebration of Reno's diverse musical community Pignic Pub & Patio announces the launch of Open Spike Night: Songwriters Social & Pot Luck, taking place every Tuesday at 7p.m.

“The idea is to have a clubhouse where all of our great songwriters can get together between tours to share a meal, debut new material, or polish up classics. Mostly it's about getting together and celebrating the community we are all building - sort of like a family dinner once a week, that’s where the potluck idea came from”, said Spike McGuire, the Spike behind Open Spike Night and host of Loud As Folk.

The sign up process is unique to other open mic nights in the area, instead of claiming a spot on a list, participants will write their name on a piece of paper and throw it in a bucket. One performer name will be randomly drawn before each slot to determine the order as the night progresses. Performance slots will be 3 songs or 12 minutes (whichever is shorter).

Bring an instrument, bring a dish, or simply just bring yourself to enjoy a weekly celebration of Reno’s songwriting community.
