Join us in sharing queer grief, resilience, rage, joy, and love through an open mic night at the Wildrose Bar.
Wednesday, December 14th from 7-9pm. Sign-ups for open mic slots (~5 minutes) will open at 6:30pm.
Queer bars and clubs are a refuge for our community and we are heartbroken and angered by the recent attack on Club Q in Colorado Springs. This Open Mic Night is an opportunity for people to come together, to return to that sense of refuge, and express themselves through poetry, music, prose, and performances.
As we remember and honor those injured and taken from us in the Club Q shooting, we will share direct links to verified funds in support of both the survivors and families of victims.
Open Mic Details:
Slots will be ~5 minutes long; a “1 minute” reminder sign will be shown to assist with time tracking.
Covers and readings of non-original work are welcome.
We will have a sound engineer, with setup for multiple microphones and stands. There are no guitar amps or plug-ins.
The Wildrose Bar has an accessible entrance.
We are working to secure ASL interpreters for this event and encourage anyone signing up to bring copies of their lyrics/poetry/scripts, etc for interpreting purposes.
Masks will be required at this Open Mic, except when actively drinking or during a performers slot (when they will be separated from the audience). We will have masks available and will provide reminders throughout the evening for attendees to continue masking.
The Wildrose Bar encourages but does not require masking. This means attendees will likely be exposed to unmasked patrons in other portions of the bar.
We will also be hosting a virtual open mic night via zoom on Thursday, December 15th from 7-9pm. Register at https://bit.ly/virtualopenmic1215 for the link.
