Doors open at 7:30, and names are drawn at 7:45 and 8:30 for two-song (eight-minute) sets. Mics available and are sanitized after each performer. If you don’t get picked, you go to the front of the queue for the next Open Stage. Why play Open Stage at the Ark? Do it to be heard. Do it so you know you can. Do it to take your music to the masses. Tremendous local performers like Dick Siegel, Chris Buhalis, and Matt Watroba spent time honing their craft on Open Stage audiences. Even nationally recognized talents like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gilda Radner, and David Alan Grier paid their dues here. If you’re not interested in getting on stage tonight, get your practice in at being a great audience member and observer of new music.
