What we're about

The Atlanta Songwriters' Club (ASC) exists for songwriter's who want to network with, relate to, become friends with, intermingle among, learn from, and give support to other songwriters. The crowd size and attendee make-up vary every week. You do not need to be a member of the club to attend.

HOW ASC WORKS IS THIS:
WE MEET ON THE SECOND MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH. We have a stage, mic, keyboard, and DI plug-ins. You bring $5.00 to help cover the cost of the room.

If you have an original song, you perform it. Everyone (whether they perform or not) chats about it after the song is performed. Then we’re on to the next performer and we repeat.

Folks attend ASC for many reasons. To hone their craft, simply be heard by fellow creatives, soak up the creative vibe that feeds their soul, and even practice bits of their own upcoming stage show in front of people who can give meaningful performance feedback.

All people, music genres, and subject matter are welcome. The only rule is: Be nice and be kind and be willing to share; to get better at our craft, attendees are always truthful and open.

Don’t want to get any feedback? No problem. Just tell everybody when you get up on stage, and we’re good to go.

The Meeting Venue:
The famous Red Light Cafe (http://redlightcafe.com/) is famous! It's also a cozy Live Performance Venue that has hosted everything from local talent to international acts, every genre of music you can imagine, burlesque shows, club meets, and your very own ASC. Do NOT bring any OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK.
