For a couple of reasons, all non-virtual open mikes listed on this site are essentially “suspended”. That is, they’re still listed, but with no scheduled dates.
Hopefully those reasons are obvious, but to be clear:
- Given the shelter-in-place restrictions in much of the country, the vast majority of these events really aren’t taking place.
- Most people have more pressing concerns right now than “tell that open mikes site that my event is suspended”.
- I don’t want to encourage people to head out when and where they shouldn’t, especially to an event that isn’t even happening.
Meanwhile, I’m adding support for virtual / on-line open mikes. It’s a work in progress, but if you do want to submit one, please do. Make sure you include a web address for participants (either an actual Zoom/etc. meeting link, or a page explaining how to connect and perform).
