Presumed Suspended Due To Covid-19 Closures

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.

The Salon (music, poetry)
Selected Mondays at 7pm
The Writers Place
3607 Pennsylvania Ave
Kansas City, MO
Host: Sharon Eiker
Open mic starts at seven hosted by the godmother of Kansas City poetry. This is a very laid back reading with lots of time for discussion and camraderie. 5 dollar cover, but no one is turned away for lack of funds. If you haven't been to this staple of the KC literary community, you are missing out and this is a perfect introduction to the many events this castle hosts.
