Philly Rising Open Mic
Come out to Philly Rising (The Monday Night Open Mic Event) @ World Cafe Live. All genres and bands are welcome. Each act plays one to two songs.
Standout performers will be selected to perform at Philly Rising Best of Monthly Showcase. The winner of that becomes the standout performer of the month and wins a prize package that include a spin on Hometown Heroes WSTW, a write up in That Mag and a featured spot at a Future Philly Rising Event.
The monthly standout will also perform Downstairs @ World Cafe Live as part of the end of the year showcase. The standout performer for the year wins a prize pack that includes a Downstairs Show @ World Cafe Live and a guest host spot on WSTW's Hometown Heroes Show
Performance slots come on a first come first served basis. The Open mic will get underway at 7:00 this evening with sign ups starting at 6:30.
There will only be two slots available for performers that perform to pre-recorded tracks in the first half of the night, which will give more room for live performers. Tracks must be downloaded to a device that has a headphone Jack.
So if you're a musician, band, poet, comedian, etc. or know someone who is come out and have some fun. For those of you who may be looking for other musicians to round out your lineup it's a great place to network.
We now have a full back-line provided by 8th Street Music so bands feel free to come down with your instruments, effects, snare and cymbals.
