Looking for open mic opportunities

Recommended Posts

Already looked; nothing on Sunday afternoons.

 

Unfortunately, the drummer is currently working a particularly unhelpful shift pattern which means that Sunday afternoons are the only time we can play! I'm hoping to find some opportunities to play a few Sunday live slots/open mic events in preparation for the time when his availability eventually improves.

With respect, having just listened to one of the tracks by your band, I wouldn't have thought there'd be many open mics that would welcome you - on account of the style (and presumably volume!) of your music. They tend to be largely acoustic affairs.

Yeah, I know. We've thought about doing a few acoustic sets without the drummer - some of our songs sound surprisingly melodic unplugged - but I'd prefer to try to find somewhere where we could thrash through a few numbers with the full-on electric contingent. Possibly wasting my time, but I can afford the expenditure of a few pixels to post the question on here! ;)

Might it be worth asking at your practice rooms if you can just bring along fifteen/twenty mates/relatives one time and play your gig there?

Not the same as a 'proper' gig, but close. The band I'm in played our first public performance at a houseparty last week. There were (when we started) eight in the audience and five in the band. It was thoroughly enjoyable on both sides though.

We've had a few mini audiences at the rehearsal place. They seem to enjoy themselves. Not the same as a proper gig, though. I'm just itching to get back onstage, but the shifts thing is a problem at the moment. Otherwise, we'd be trawling for opening support slots.
