open mic night at clementine
How many times have you sat and watched American Idol or The Voice and thought, “I could totally do that if someone gave me a chance. All I need is one shot.”
Well, it looks like you’re all out of excuses because tonight is Open Mic night at Clementine (153 South Main Street). Battling with Little Grill Collective for most prestigious and infamous Open Mic night in the area (Little Grill’s events are held every Thursday), Clementine’s open mic pitches itself as a singer/songwriter showcase giving an opportunity to anyone with a voice and a lot of confidence.
The mic opens tonight at 9:00pm and is held on the basement level of Clementine in Ruby’s. In the immortal words of B. Rabbit from 8 Mile:
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo
Well technically, the opportunity comes once a week, but you get the point. Make sure to check out Clementine’s tonight and seize your moment!
