O I C Studios Open Mic
A creative and interactive event showcasing Spokenword, music, comedy, trivia and games.
Third Friday of each month
Backwoods Guitar LLC. 120 S. Osage Sedalia Mo
Those wishing to perform may sign up upon arrival. Seating may be limited so feel free to bring your own chair.
Open Mic Guidelines:
The focus is on open mic, people walking in to read a poem, play a song or to do a comedy routine. There will be a designated reader and musician ready to stand in if no one participates in the open mic.
Musicians may play covers or their own original material.
Writers may read anything providing it is their own orignal works. Genres can include poetry, prose, anecdotal, haiku, essay, short stories or excerpts from longer works.
It will be expected of you that you are ready to perform when called upon. For instance, reading material in hand or instruments tuned ahead of time.
If there are more than two musicians in your band, you will be required to contact James in advance of the event. This will give us time to set up.
We strongly embrace our constitutional right to free speech. However, limit those things which may be considered obscene, vulgar or risque to a minimum. In other words, don’t overdo it! And as always, be mindful of your audience.
We will provide cables, microphones and a mic stand. If you require anything else, please bring it with you. Seating will sometimes be limited so feel free to bring your own chair.
Each event will be streamed live on our Oicstudios YouTube channel. This will be a great opportunity for artists seeking additional exposure.
From time to time, gift certificates from area businesses will be given to winners of trivia and games.
