What we're about

Public Group

The Atlanta Songwriters' Club (ASC) exists for songwriter's who want to network with, relate to, become friends with, intermingle among, get from and give support to, and learn from other songwriters. The crowd size and attendee make-up vary every week.

How ASC works is this:
We have a stage and a mic. You bring $5.00 to cover the cost of the room.

Then, 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.

Meeting Venue:
The Red Light Cafe (http://redlightcafe.com/) is a famous and 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 OUTSIDE DRINKS.

*Original Song definition: A song you write both the lyrics and the music/melody for, or lyrics/melody you write to a purchased/leased beat/musical composition are all acceptable. We are very aware of not infringing on others’ copyrights. That means no covers of a song playing on the radio, streaming, on that CD you love. The exception to covers is this: Any song written before 1920 is fair game.

ASC:

• does not do contests.

• does not give out prizes.

• and is not for date/party nights. Sometimes we’ve been known to shush folks who were not respecting a performer's time and the time of fellow attendees. (Come to Red Light Cafe on other nights: Canoodling and rowdy is perfectly fine then.)
