First Friday


July Open Mic Night

We are celebrating July’s First Friday with a showcase of Knoxville’s budding musical talent. Our doors will be propped wide open on Friday, July 7th, with attentive ears and an open microphone. For anyone who can work up the courage, a stage awaits.

Ready to showcase your newest songs? Be sure to email and reserve a slot in advance. Each slot will be given 2 songs or 10 minutes, whichever comes first. The open mic night is available for music talents of all levels. Come out and support your friends and hear the new music of our great city!
