April 9, 2020

We're assuming that most, if not all, of the non-virtual Open Mikes listed on this site are on hold for now. Rather than encourage anyone to go out for no good reason, we're marking all Open Mikes on-hold until we hear otherwise from the listing owners.

Open Mike (music, poetry)
Selected Tuesdays at 8pm
Starry Nights
696 University Ave
Rochester, NY
Host: Jeff Slutsky
The venue is intimate, so the acoustics are excellent. The audience is pretty much always receptive, attentive and enthusiastic. As long as you get there around 7 you should be able to perform 2-3 songs. The host is very gregarious and accommodating and updates the Facebook page regularly with images and videos of performances. If you really wish to actually be heard, this is a great open mic to check out. It goes from 7-10.
