Weston Open Mic Night - March 2017
Wed, March 22, 2017, 6:30 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
This Open Mic Night is sponsored by the Weston Art & Innovation Center. Perform or just come to listen to acoustic music and spoken word at the Weston Town Hall. Refreshments will be provided starting at 6:30pm followed by performances at 7:00pm. Please register two days before the event so we know how much food we need and who will be performing. We will gladly accept $5 per person at the door to help defray the cost of this event. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need additional information.
This Open Mic Night is intended to be an inclusive, regular event that forges connections between musicians, poets, and an enthusiastic audience. Our goal is to foster creativity and build a community where participants have an opportunity to try out new material in a supportive and open environment. We expect to attract people of various ages and experience levels with different musical and poetic tastes and styles.
