BluSeed Studios has a 20 plus year history of providing alternate arts experiences. Their Open-Minded Mics were well attended and very popular. Since then, there are many open mics in our area. In late 2023, the Open-Minded Mics were rebranded as the Sober Open-Minded Mic to make it accessible to all. We had 4 people at the first one and 34 at the latest one. Each night, there are nine, ten-minute performance slots and a half-hour spotlight artist. Spotlight artists have included a renowned tabla player, a high school stand-up comic, and electric and acoustic performers. Open mic participants have included poets and folk musicians, electric guitarists, and pianists performing covers and originals. The audience has also grown and there are people who regularly attend to appreciate the depth and quality of the performances. Performers appreciate that the space is a listening room.
This New Year’s Day gathering is a celebration of what has been accomplished and a way to kick off a new year of great performances. It will be an informal and fun alcohol-free party. Held on the third Friday of the month, January’s Sober Open-Minded Mic is January 19, 2024. Jeffrey Dupra is the spotlight artist. `
