Open Mic

Welcome to Passim’s open mic series!  We’re hosting an open mic, and you’re invited.  Each show will feature 2 hours of performers, from 7pm-9pm Eastern.  While we’re predominately a music open mic, we also welcome poetry, storytelling, and comedy.

Upcoming open mics:

Sunday, June 11th, 7pm – virtual open mic – sign up HERE – LGBTQIA+ Night!  Come celebrate Pride Month with our all-queer lineup.  Tonight is hosted by special guest Anju, who will kick off the night with a song of their own.

Anju is a singer, songwriter, producer, and performer shaped by the people and places in Minnesota and Massachusetts. Their music conjures imaginary lovers, scents of citrus, and visions of hairy brown skin under the sun. Anju was highlighted by NPR’s All Songs Considered as an outstanding Tiny Desk Contest entrant. They are currently teaching piano, violin, and guitar to young musicians and working on their debut full-length album.  Anju is a current member of Passim’s Folk Collective.

How it works:

In-person open mics:
Each performer gets 2 songs or 10 minutes, whichever comes first. Covers are allowed, but originals are encouraged. Vocal mics, instrument mics, cables, DIs, and a Kurzweil keyboard will be available for your use on stage.  You will have a short line check with the sound person immediately before your set.  This is an in-person performance at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA. Show starts at 7pm ET. All in-person attendees (both performers & audience) will need to have a ticket. Tickets are $8 for the public or free for Passim members. You can purchase tickets at passim.org/live or at the box office the night of the show.

Virtual open mics:
Above are sign-up links to each show with slots available each night (plus alternates).  Each act will have 2 songs or 10 minutes to perform (whichever comes first.)  The confirmed acts that sign up will receive an email the morning of the show with instructions on how to join the stream.  (You will receive tech info before noon!)  It will be hosted on Streamyard and streamed live on Passim’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website.  Covers are allowed, but originals are encouraged.

No-shows will not be allowed to sign up for future open mics.  If you have extenuating circumstances or need to change your performance time, please email us ahead of time so we can plan.
