Center OpenMic

1st Saturday • 6:30pm

Socialize for a bit, then first act starts at 7pm. Performances runs until 10pm. Please keep in mind that OpenMic is acoustic when deciding what equipment to bring. Acoustic and small percussion instruments are probably best, although on occasion two small amps (one guitar and one bass) will be provided just in case. A television with DVD player is also available for film or performance artists. We welcome people of all ages, identities, genders, colors, and sports team preferences.

Recommended for ages 13 and over.

If anybody has any questions about equipment, call 919.832.4484 to leave a message for Tristan Smith.
