The Bay Area has a thriving performance scene with readings, Open-Mics and Slams pretty much every night of the week on one side of the bay or another. This is a group that's all about getting you out to these shows and, hopefully, on to the mic! We'll include all kinds of shows and workshops (poetry, comedy, slams, acoustic, improv, storytelling, etc.) as long as the mic is OPEN you're welcome* to post it here. *if you list a show all that we ask is you offer a discount to members of the group
