I have been wanting to post about the open mic nights in the area for a while. Now with this new found lady of leisure time I secured for myself I able to write more. Lady of leisure time agrees with me, although I know I can't get by on my good looks forever. My grandfather had this saying that I borrow from him time to time. I wish I had been born rich instead of good looking. I wish this was the case for me too gramps...Alas I will get a new job soon although probably not the dream job I wish for... Anyone need a tour manager or merch girl or a blogger to tour with you so I can make you look cool? Call me...
I am on location at Kicaster's, Thanks to Kevin for letting me mooch the wifi while I eat fried pickles and sip diet coke. Kevin recently moved the open mic to Wednesday night and I hadn't had the chance to check it out till this week. I really want to get to more open mics. They are a free previews of people you may not have heard of. I like them cause it introduces me to new music. With the help of my buddy Ernie from Band of Bandits I compiled a list of some open mics in the area that are worth checking out. I am sure there are more and feel free to let me know if I am missing any of them.
