Live Surprise MC at tomorrow’s RadioBedlam…7pm Tuesday’s open mic night
If you didn’t make it the last time, consider dropping by Bedlam Coffee tonight to hear some local flavor. I missed the inaugural showing, but I went to the second one a couple weeks ago and it was really cool. They turned the couch area into a small little stage and people just get up from sitting in the crowd and start jamming.
The sound system was a little useless the last time I went, but that’s actually really ok since it is a small space. I suppose it creates some intimacy in the experience since you’re so close.
Everything you hear is really that person sharing–some for the first time in public–their hearts, concerns, and passions set to music.
I didn’t manage to stay the whole time and only saw about 3 acts, but it was still worth going. Granted, this isn’t like going to see a huge show and sometimes the performers are somewhat less than professionals, but this is a really cool thing for our neighborhood and I encourage all our readers to check it out.
I suppose if we wanted to be a cool, grown-up blog, we could try profiling some of the regular performers. I’ll see what I can do.
