Grand Finale Unity Temple Open Mic


June 21 – 3rd Saturday Coffeehouse/Summer Solstice/ Grand Finale 

Yes, it’s been a long and beautiful run since we began in March, 2004, with performers of many genres at the open mic and as features (musicians of all sorts, poets, fiction writers, monologists, improv groups, magic, and even a Tuvan throat singer). Now the 3rd Saturday Coffeehouse is coming to an end. We hope you’ll join us June 21st for the final (105th) coffeehouse. There will be no featured performer—it’s an entire evening of open mic and celebration (more like a wake than a lament). We hope you’ll come by and share the good vibes. Doors open 7:30 for sign-up, Open mic at 8, itermission followed by more open mic.

    Unfortunately I can't attend. I'm working a Yellow Ribbon event for veterans coming home from Afghanistan.

    This is a sad experience for me. My first performance/open mic was here way way back in 2007. I am sad about this.

      News! They're going to do a documentary on the Frugal Muse open mic night. Filming starts July. Wicked cool.

      SeArch you tube for Frugal Muse. The bids online are my film work.

    What are the restrictions on poetic content? I have dark stuff that is very powerful, but clean. And powerful stuff that is kinda dark and personal.

      Let it rip. The only restriction to any performer is the 5 minute time limit. That's about it.

      I tried COMEDY at Frugal Muse and that went pretty well. But I think I'll do an almost-slam poem.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
