Please mark your calendar now to come out to our May Open Mic on Monday, May 11, 2009, at the Warehouse Theater. Signup and socializing begins at 7:30, and the singing starts at 8:00 p.m. We’ll have the stupendous Alex Tang at the piano.
Admission to the Open Mic is a suggested donation for the pianist and to cover the rental fee: $15 for non-members, $12 for paid members of the DC Cabaret Network.
The Warehouse Theater is located at 1021 7th Street, NW, across from the new Convention Center.
Everyone is welcome. Our Open Mic Nights are a great opportunity to try out new stuff, take out an old friend, or just hone your skills in a friendly and supportive environment.
We hope to see you there.
