The Cafe open mic
5115 N. Lincoln Ave.
$2 & 2 drink minimum (any drink, even bottled water or soda)
The Cafe (5115 N. Lincoln Ave.) hosts a weekly poetry/performance art open mic (hosted by Janet Kuypers). October 11th has mini-feature night for all open mike poets (Kristin LaTour was originally the feature, but she is out of state 10/11/11), so for the open mike, all poets can have up to a 10 minute mini-feature for their performance! I am really looking forward to this evening at the Cafe (since John and I just performed music with poetry at the Omniphonic Challenge in Chicago 10/07/11, and even though John is out of town, I *may* resurrect a poem or two from that set with pre-recorded John Yotko music) ,and I look forward to seeing everyone there!
