Always Open Mic

Grab. Drop. Repeat…

Always Open Mic is a creative channel dedicated to poetry, spoken word, comedy, original music and other virtual performances you can come up with related to a theme. Performers sign up, record up to 3 minutes, and then we share your performance on our video channel and social media feeds for 72 hours before it disappears. Select performances may be featured in our showcase gallery indefinitely, and participants may be invited to perform in-person at a live showcase.
