Café Lift

venue:cafeliftsj.com
event:facebook.com/cafelift

Since our re-opening last August, Cafe' LIFT has become more and more popular with the college and young adult age crowd. Any kind of creative expression is welcome- music, poetry,spoken word, dance, art… whatever! We even have an "open canvas" most nights for visual artists who paint. Many non-performers come just to enjoy the music, atmosphere and people of Cafe' LIFT.

This ongoing Wednesday night open mic in south San Jose has hundreds of videos up on our Facebook page and YouTube profile because we video the first performance of each artist. There's often a DJ between performances and, so I've been told, the sound is "amazing." Recording artists may sign up to use our Artist's Merch Nook to sell their CDs and promo merchandise on nights they perform.

We only ask of our sign-up performers to honor the 3-P rule: "No Profanity, No Preaching, No Politics"

Signup begins at 8:00 and last performance goes up at 10:00. Two songs or 10 minutes (including setup) are allowed.

Sound: House PA, Keyboard, and direct input (1/4") or mic for guitars available.
