This is your chance to play at the Freight. 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:
Signups – on a first-come, first-served basis – begin when the door opens at 7:00 p.m. The show starts promptly at 7:30 pm.
Admission is $7, even if you’re performing.
EXCEPTION: Any performer who shows up with a paying, non-performing member of the audience plays for free! (NOTE: you must show up together to take advantage of this offer.)
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 ready to perform when your turn comes up. Please limit your introduction to thirty seconds.
We occasionally have special shows and friendly competitions that are open to REGULAR attendees of our Open Mic.
BONUS: Anyone – performers and audience alike – who stays until the end of the night is entitled to a FREE TICKET to an upcoming Freight show of their choice. Shows that are sold out or close to being sold out are excluded from this offer.
Tune up, drop in, go on!
