May 5, 2016 - Open Mic Night

**This week, we have a special ticketed show with Rachel Potter & Union Steel this evening - Open Mic begins immediately following the show and the signup sheet will be at the door for all who want to play** 

Every Thursday night, we invite all singer/songwriters to join us for our weekly open mic night, a.k.a. Living Room Live.  Creative Loafing's Best of the Bay 2014 for "Best Open Mic Night", the Hideaway Cafe has opened up its doors and its stage for the past 7 years to countless rising talents as well as seasoned veterans who have made a career in music.

Host John Kelly, a singer/songwriter himself, started this weekly tradition 7 years ago after building a stage as an extension of his homegrown recording studio. And the rest is history. The talent has been immense, the highlight reel endless... and the memories priceless. You won't find a more appreciative audience than you will here at St Petersburg's Original Listening Room! 

The board opens starting at 6pm for singer/songwriters to sign up to take the stage to share 2-3 original songs and then "pass the mic" so to speak. This week - Open Mic begins immediately following the Rachel Potter show. Artists - if you'd like to get the recording studio "in the red" for your set, be sure to indicate that when you sign up. For as low as $35, you can walk away with WAV files of your performance and a special Hideaway Cafe keepsake flash drive. 

Invite your favorite music loving friends out for some incredible original music from some of St Pete's finest! As always Thursdays are free.
