One of New York City’s most well-known open mics is only 10 days away. The Street Poets NYC monthly open mic, Thee Open Mic, will be held on June 28 in all new location. Because of huge popularity and a growing crowd, Thee Open Mic will be moved to Evolve BK on 80 Vernon Ave, in Brooklyn New York.
From starting with humble beginnings in a small Bed Stuy apartment to a Brooklyn warehouse, Thee Open mic still promises to provide the same warm, intimate setting and cozy atmosphere from when it began in 2011. The first show had an attendance of 4 people and now they have an average over 100 guest per month.
The Open Mic gives local and national underground talent the opportunity to gain exposure, better their craft, and provides Artists a market of people who love, and support their art.
“Many of the members of the collective have become involved with the open mic since the shows conception, and they have shown exponential growth in their presence and delivery” says Shadel Preddy, CEO of Street Poets NYC. “The Street Poets give the impression that a family structure is what they go by and because of it, longevity is in their future. I’d say Thee Open Mic is changing the norm of Open Mic’s for sure” Preddy states.
The Street Poets NYC invite you for a night of poetry, live music and free drinks, as they celebrate a night of positivity and love, as well as moving to an all new location.
