New! Open Mic & Open Forum Nights

Open Forum: Ask a Musician
This will be a chance for artists and audience members to brainstorm over a range of topics including where music is going, where New York is heading, what you’d like to see in events, what artists would like from the audience, and a host of other things. Guest speakers and panelists to be announced.

Open Salon Night
This event is envisioned to be part salon (from 19th Century artist circles) and part open mic nights of today, with spoken word and karaoke. This event was inspired both by the abundance of great applicants this year, many more than we could present, and also from observing so many talented and creative amateurs and what they’re able to play and write.
