The little band I’m in, “Crabgrass” played it’s first open mike last week at Fritz’s. Fun! If you, either on your own or with friends, learn how to sing even just a few songs, an open mike is a good way to get out there, if you feel like you want to try performing. For better or worse, some open mikes are pretty much like rehearsing in your living room – the people in the audience are sometimes so busy chatting and eating that they don’t even notice your mistakes!
