Open Mic Night at Caffe Lena
Play your song on the Caffe's famous stage at Open Mic Night! During the past three decades, Lena's open mic has been recognized with "Best Of" awards from Metroland Magazine, The Alt Weekly, The Saratogian's Reader's Poll and Saratoga.com's Fab Five. Just like at their weekend shows, all attention is focused on the stage.
Open Mic Night is every Monday, all ages, all styles. The event is free, but please leave a $3 donation for their nonprofit organization if you are able to.
Sign up is 7pm to 7:25pm, the show is at 7:30pm. Two songs, or 10 minutes. Sign up is first come, first served.
You're welcome to use their Yamaha studio upright acoustic piano or acoustic Martin guitar. They can play your MP3 backing track through their sound system. You're welcome to bring amps and drums but setup and breakdown is part of your 10 minutes.
Open Mic Nights have full table service. No alcohol. They serve pizza, nachos, veggie burgers, desserts baked on premises, soft drinks, and coffees.
Please play nice! This is a diverse community that has a great time making art and helping one another get better. Excessive profanity, explicit sexual themes, and "humor" that unkindly targets a specific group undermines this goal. It is up to the discretion of the host to enforce the house standards.
