Find Your Muse Open Mic
Find Your Muse Open Mic is Charlotte's premier open mic night. Each week we feature a special guest performer from around the region. Come out and see some of the area's best up & coming talent perform their latest original tunes. Always a fun time, hosted by the semi-hilarious Mr. Erik Button. Look forward to the start of a great Monday night at 7:30pm as you are greeted by the rest of our FYM team; Aaaaron at the door, Donniebaseball behind the bar serving up cold ones, and Normal Dennis doing his best at making it all sound great from behind the board. Sign ups are at 7:45, so come out and get your time slot. Participate in The "Bad-Ass" of the Week, and maybe win a $20 gift card.
Tom Maxwell was in the Squirrel Nut Zippers between 1994 and 1999. He wrote their top-20 hit "Hell," propelling the band to multi-platinum status. To date, the Zippers have sold close to three million albums, and songs that Tom wrote for them have appeared in dozens of movies and television shows (including Sesame Street and Sex and the City), a Super Bowl commercial and a Tony Award-winning Broadway soundtrack.
Tom's latest project is The Minor Drag, a collection of North Carolina all-star musicians. The band will release an album of new material in January, with help from long-time Zippers producer Mike Napolitano and New Orleans trumpet great Duke Heitger, who appeared on the Zippers most popular album, HOT. Tom Maxwell and The Minor Drag has everything you'd expect from this artist: New Orleans second line, minor-key blues, acoustic ballads and hot jazz menace.
