Open Mic For Morning People

This meetup is for musicians who would enjoy performing at an open mic held on weekend late mornings in the Cambridge/Somerville area and audience members who would enjoy them. Our vision for an open-mic for morning people is to create an atmosphere that is safe, supportive, fun and inclusive, of different kinds of music and people. First-timers and any kind of inter-generational collaborations are strongly encouraged. While the focus is on acoustic music, all genres and ages are welcome. Poetry, stand-up, or other kinds of performance art welcome, as well.
