Get ready to own the mic.
Burnaby Neighbourhood House is hosting the first open mic night of the new year at its South Slope community hall on Thursday, Jan. 3.
The popular monthly event is scheduled to happen on the first Thursday of each month in 2019. The nights are open to performers aged 14 and older who would like 10 minutes at the microphone to perform original or cover material. Performances can include solos or duets, and all performers are welcome – singers, instrumentalists, comedians, poets, spoken word artists.
Each night finishes with a performance by a special guest artist.
Anyone interested in performing should show up at 6:15 p.m. to register, since spots are allotted on a first-come, first-serve basis to the first seven acts. There’s no registration in advance.
Anyone who wants to enjoy a night of entertainment is also invited to turn out and listen. It’s by donation, with a suggested donation of $4 per person; proceeds go towards renovation and upkeep of the community hall.
The fun all happens at 5024 Rumble St. For information, call Burnaby Neighbourhood House at 604-431-0400 or see www.burnabynh.ca.
