    Did there used to be a list of open mic nights in the Musicians Resources bit or does my memory decieve me? Maybe there should be one there anyway.

    Does anyone have a list, or just want to recommend their favourite open mic night?

    Tuesday nights at The Ship on Briggate!

    Tiny and fairly quiet, but a good low pressure environment and a nice atmosphere.

    Ben Greaves - known as bongobenny on here.

    I'm surprised no-one's added any other open mic nights on here - I'm sure there's loads!

    Aye, open mics aren't as popular here as they were when I used to do them every night..It's all about the acoustic nights. Mondays Lyrically Justified at Carpe, Tuesdays Ship, my night 9 til 11. wednesday, Clique night at the Grove, Thursday not even sure any more, Friday, nothing, Saturday, nyet, Sunday, er..Not sure. Someone needs to start a goodun.

    Primrose's myspace says open mic is on Tuesday, not Thurs. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

    Yes, The Primrose is running their open mic on a Tuesday now. Cloth Cat is starting a new open mic at The Chemic in Woodhouse on Thursdays starting on 10th April. This will run every 2nd, 3rd & 4th Thursday in the month. It's been a while since we finished our last run down at The Primmy and it will be good to be back promoting grassroots talent in a totally open mic way. It will be starting at around 8pm so if you want to perform, come and put your name down early.

    Every other Tuesday there's an open mic at Baraka on Queens Road in Hyde Park - you can bring your own booze too! It's £3 to get in but free if you're performing. There's also an all you can eat Morroccan stlye buffet for £5 if you're hungry. It usually ends up as a massive bongo jam but there a few solo performers - very laid back atmosphere and there is sheesha on sale too for those that are inclined. A good night for anyone looking for an alternative to a pub open mic!

    Any one had any experience of the open mic at the Ship? My mate said it's a tidy pub but I've never been there! Might have to check it out!
