I found a venue in Winder, Ga. called 106 west(www.106west.com). It is a converted church that is well fitted for gigging. I went to the open mike last thurs. and enjoyed myself a lot.
They've only had the open mikes for three weeks, and need some support. They are depending on local and word of mouth advertising, so I thought I'd give them a plug.
the open mikes are thurs nites from 7 to 8 and a feature act follows. check out their website for details. see ya'll there!
