Community Open Mic
Open Mic

The first Saturday of each month is Community Open Mic night, a SoulFood tradition, and also a wildly popular and well-attended event. As with most events, we stream our Open Mic live to the world from our livestream page.

Here’s your chance to show Aunt Betty in Australia that song you’ve been working on for months now! So that each person has time to shine, we ask that each act perform only 3 songs/poems or 15 minutes. Even then, this event runs from 6pm until usually past midnight.

Come down and enjoy the fun. We never know what gems the night will offer. Tribe Members can sign up by phone or in person beginning at 9AM on the day of the event. Sign ups open for all at 3PM. Slots are limited to the first 22 to sign up!

Open Mic Showcase!
Open Mic

This night is dedicated to showcasing some of the incredible talent that graced the SoulFood stage during our last Open Mic. By voting and serendipity, these acts were chosen to return and further showcase their talents in four individual 1/2 hour sets. Truly a night to watch the community shine.

And as usual, if you can’t be here, you can watch the event from our link.

Poetry Open Mic

SoulFood Poetry Night is curated by Michael Dylan Welch, and has been running since July of 2006. We ask one featured reader to select someone else to read with them. This process echoes the sense of community and connection that is central to SoulFood Books, brings in new voices, and helps to create harmony or contrast in our reading series. Featured readers start shortly after 7:00 p.m. After we have a break to enjoy the bookstore, its art gallery, and especially its café, we have an open-mic reading where we invite you to share your poetry. Our featured readers are mostly from the greater Seattle area, but we welcome poets from farther afield as well. More info:
