Click here a well-written, intelligent argument for why you should attend a local open mic! Looking forward to more posts from Steve Makofka!  Thanks for sharing Steve!

(Excerpt) “I believe that open mic events are music incubators.  They are developmental in ways that are similar to school music departments and performing arts organizations.  They have different pedagogical philosophies and values, but if you want to find the raw, bleeding, cutting edge of musical creativity in your community, go to an open mic.

Or better yet, get together with a group of your friends.  Appoint the most qualified person to be the designated performer.  Encourage them to schedule a time slot at an open mic. Then go with them and support their performance.  Art doesn’t get any more personal or community oriented than that. ”
