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.
