Freight Open Mic
The longest running open stage in the Bay Area now has free admission! Our Open Mic has brought in some of our brightest performers, including Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza. The audience is friendly – and people actually listen! So come on down and join the fun. All performers welcome.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
- Doors open at 7pm, lottery for performance spots is held at 7:20. The show starts promptly at 7:30.
- Admission is free for all.
- Solo performers get to play one song; groups get to play two songs. Management reserves the right to award a performer an extra song now and then, for any reason management deems appropriate.
Please be a considerate performer and refrain from tuning or practicing in the listening room. We ask that you go outside the venue to practice rather than practicing in the lobby, as it is distracting and can be heard from within the listening room.
Available Equipment: performers will have access to the piano on stage, microphones, instrument line-in, and iPhone/iPod line-in.
Please note that there is no drum kit on stage, and due to time constraints we ask that performers not bring a kit to set up. More portable percussion instruments are welcome.
Please be ready to perform when your turn comes up. Please limit your introduction to 30 seconds.
Tune up, drop in, go on!
PLEASE NOTE: Your RSVP does not enter you into the lottery drawing for a performance spot. If you are interested in performing, please visit The Freight's website for more info. http://www.thefreight.org
