For about a year I’ve been attending the Voices Merging Open Mic, the largest amateur open mic in the Twin Cities. There are roughly 300 people who attend these gatherings. It feels like a concert, except it’s free and the atmosphere (in my oh-so-humble opinion) is a lot warmer. Each artist who makes the list has five minutes on the mic, and there’s always a featured artist who gets a little more time. I love going to these, and I try to get on the mic as often as possible too. It’s great practice, and a great crowd.
This Monday, I attended a VM open mic whose theme was “Let’s Talk About Sex.” I don’t usually perform to the themes, but that one was worth writing a piece for. So I wrote and performed the piece below, which was a ton of fun. Not safe to watch at work, though.
