Our popular in-person event, Open Mic Night, is back and we're now VIRTUAL! That means you can now enjoy Open Mic Night from the comfort of your home on Friday nights! If you have not been able to attend the Café’s open mics due to travel restrictions, this is the perfect opportunity to perform or enjoy the show without having to leave the house! If you are new to performing, this is the perfect space to start.     

Come join Mountainside’s Virtual Poetry Slam Open Mic Night on the 1st Friday of every month and express yourself in a safe, sober space.   

About This Event

Feeling creative during these isolating times? Writing poetry, spoken word, and improvisation can be extremely therapeutic during times of stress and uncertainty. It can also be helpful to share your writing with other likeminded individuals through performance.   

  • This is a sober event. You do not need to be in recovery to perform or attend as a member of the audience, but we do ask that you are not under the influence of any substances while joining the event. 
  • Please refrain from inappropriate language and/or triggering topics (graphic drug use, gore, politics, etc.)
  • Performance Time Limit: Each performer will have 10 minutes. If you want to perform, see below for instructions to confirm your spot!
