I've been to this open mic several times. The intimacy is wonderful. The host is extremely down to earth and a remarkable guitarist with a great voice. When it gets perfectly crowded, it's my favorite open mic, even more so than the really popular one in Arlington, VA. It's a dive bar atmosphere with a rinky-dink stage. In fact, I think they no longer use the stage. Last time I went, they just put the mic on the floor, which was better. Get there before eight and you don't have to pay a cover of $5 for the band downstairs. I think they advertise starting at 8, but they seem to start at 9. It's a cavernous dive worth exploring if you're from out of town. Have fun singing and playing.
The only true cross between the art of music and the art of comedy. Bring your instrument, your story, your poem, your song.
8-9 - No cover charge
9-11 - $5.00 cover charge
