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. Cost per slot is $10, but if you’re a Tribe Member, it’s free.
