US and Canadian Poetry Open Mikes

Harvey Milk Park

The Soap Box Show up (music, comedy, poetry)
Selected Thursdays at 8pm

Hosted by Theo Hirsch

195 East 3rd Street
Long Beach, CA
There is a Soap box in a nice little cement park with trees by a bus stop on 3rd street in Long Beach. Where my friend Brian Powell and myself will be hosting the open mic at 9pm this Thursday, and possibly every week. I am bringing a street amp with a couple of mics and a guitar plug. If your from So. Cal. you will likely get cold so bring a jacket and possibly a blanket. Harvey Milk for sure would approve of this shit, that's for sure. Its me, so as always, no censorship, just good vibes and responsibility. No sign ups, just a circle of chalk around the soap box and when you're ready to perform just step in after the performer on the soap box. limit each performance to 7 minutes, please. You can perform more than once but be courteous of others who have not performed. We will be having a feature performer who will have a 20 minute slot.
