I'll be co-hosting a new musician's open mic that's being put on as part of the Providence Poetry Slam down at AS220 (115 Empire St.)!

Every third Thursday of the month, there will be a singer/songwriter open mic from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. A feature performer will play a set for the last half-hour.

There is a $4 cover, which will go towards the Providence Poetry Slam (to send their slam teams to national competitions this summer) and AS220.

This Thursday (the 18th), in addition to co-hosting with Jared Paul, coach of the Providence Slam Team, I will be the featured performer (ooh, boy!).

I invite every songwriter in the area to come down and check it out, especially if you've never been to AS220! It's the premier home base for independent artists in Rhode Island.
