Anything open (by invitation, sign-up, etc.) to the general public, where live music may be performed, may be included here. is built and maintained by Paul Roub, a singer / songwriter / guitarist who fondly remembers some great open mike nights that led him to all sorts of amazing musicians and friends. Content comes from various sources, most notably from user submissions.
