SIE is an open stage welcoming ALL ARTISTS: singers, writers, comics, poets, painters, dancers, musicians, actors, acrobats to exchange inspiration. We play once a month in Long Beach and we strive to be a space that's all inclusive when it comes to art. We're equal parts booked show and open mic. Every month we Feature artists from three general catergories of disciplines (Movement, Written, and Musical) however we do love to mix it up so don't be surpised if you see a mime performing or something, and we also have sign ups for you diamonds in the rough out there that would like to show us your talents. Sign-ups start at 7 and they tend to fill up quick and the show starts promptly at 7:30.

This place is really cool sign up @ the door, all genres. Everyone is friendly and you get to go up more than one time if theres time. Its a $5 cover but its really worth it. The hosts are down to earth and awesome poets as well. Great vibes and hot tea on a Saturday way better than the club!
