Is there a guitar gathering dust in the corner of your room as if to ask, “When are we gonna take the stage again?” Open Mic at Der Rathskeller is the answer. Every second and fourth Thursday of the month is your chance to show off at Memorial Union, whether it be full-band, a solo act, an instrumental performance, poetry, or a comedy routine. The mic is live – what you do with it is up to you.
So when’s your next chance to be a part of it? Tomorrow night, February 22! Sign-up begins at 7:45. At 8 there’s a drawing to determine order (à la NBA Draft lottery). Each act gets fifteen minutes, so make sure you prepare at least two to three songs. Be sure to invite your friends to watch in amazement at how good you are. That’s all you need to know to play on the same stage that acts like WHY?, Los Campesinos, and Real Estate have played. So start practicing!
