My word for 2011 is "FORGE" (see New Year's blog post) and when I picked that word, I made a few promises to myself. One thing I vowed to do was participate in more Open Mic events. Sharing songs in a casual setting is perfect for networking, trying out new material, and honing skills that can ONLY be developed in front of an audience.
So -- how perfect is this? My buddy Nick Ciampi has organized a Songwriters Open Mic at Barista's Coffee ROASTING. Roast....Forge. Can you see how I might take that as an omen?
Nick is hoping the event will become a Thursday evening tradition at Barista's.
If you're a fan of original music, come on out on June 23rd. If you're a songwriter, please join us and share what you're working on. Sing a little bit and enjoy a cup of exceptional specialty coffee.
