Open Mic

IMG_4686.jpg

Every last Thursday of the month poets, musicians, and musers gather among the books and our darling piano to share their work. Hosted by local musician Peter Breen, our Open Mic is a space to experiment with new work, to unearth old work, or practice in front of a humble crowd. All are welcome to share or just to listen. Slots are 10 minutes each; sign ups start at 6:30.

This month's featured performer is Jim Byron. Jim Byron, who sounds like Youth Spirit incarnate (akin not only to Bob but also Conor Oberst and Daniel Johnston). A kindly soul, likely candidate for the spokesman for his generation, maniac of invention, generating new songs or poems during any good week, his lyrics manage brilliance and innocence with a poignant voice sure to mess up your heart.
