Poetry, singing, guitar, storytelling, monologues, juggling, backflips, stand-up, improv, dance… ANYTHING GOES!

CaRaVaN Open Mic + Open Stage is back indoors at X-Cues Café & Lounge for the fall, winter, and early spring! Come join us every Monday night (with some holiday exceptions where we will go virtual on Instagram Live) for live local talent, tasty food, great drinks, and community.

Sign up begins at 6:30 PM, with performances starting right at 7 and going until 9:30 PM. Musicians can perform 2 songs, while poets, comedians, improvisers, dancers, and others will get ~5 minutes. (The last Monday of every month, the show will start at 7:30 after a monthly edition of “The Circus of Objects” at X-Cues.)

CaRaVaN is an entirely volunteer-run, “Anything Goes” open mic that has been running every week for over 11 years. Music of all genres, spoken word, comedy, magic, dance, storytelling, or any other number of other unique performances could hit the stage on any given Monday. CaRaVaN regularly features artists with a wide range of skill levels — from experienced performers trying out new things to folks taking the stage for the first time — and we welcome them all!

As far as the ongoing pandemic, we recognize that everyone has different levels of risk they’re willing to take. So out of courtesy, we still ask you to maintain a reasonable distance from folks you don’t already know. Mask use may make some feel more comfortable attending events, so please wear them if you’d like!
