Open Mic Saturdays at Lámpás

Time icon 2023-09-23, 20:30 - 2023-09-23, 23:15

Euro icon FREE

Open Mic is simple: you sign up and come play, or just show up, and chances are you’ll still play. Advance sign-ups get 15 minutes playing time, or as arranged with organizer, walk-ins play in the function of time available: 1-2-3 songs. So if you’re a travelling musician, aspiring amateur or experimenting pro, this is probably an ideal way for you to play with a low overhead: no special management or contacts necessary. Are you audience? You’re in for a diverse night of music, that’s for sure; you might even be able to put your friend on stage if you can convince them (and if they can play some music).
