    There's one at The Bierkeller (opposite the art gallery) on Sunday nights. The Park Row Bar (upstairs) also have live music on Thursday evenings. If people are really good at the open mic night they get paid to play upstairs.

    I thought Carpe already ran one on a Monday?

    and yeah, the Bier Keller one is great. Run really well, good atmosphere. Gunna have to check that Park Row one out at some point.

    Not an Open Mic mic at such, but I figured I'd add another night that might of interest to some:

    2nd and 4th Monday (I know it was last night, but I think it's twice a month)

    7 Arts Cafe in Chapel Allerton run a acoustic jam night, in the bar. Basically a bunch of people show up, sit in a group and play songs & tunes together and have a laugh. Mainly folky or Americana stuff, but whatever you fancy playing really. There was everything from Radiohead to Buddy Holly, through to Willie Nelson last night.

    Good crack, plus they have the Thin Lizzy ale "Jailbreak" on tap!

    No acapella rappers yet, but there's still time..!

    We really are starting from scratch.

    Can I add our Open Mic night this Sat (6th) July. We have a basic PA set up, you would need to bring acoustic guitar (if using) and backing tracks. It's a bit experimental as its the first one, crowd varies in age and has quite mainstream tastes, you could be playing to 5 people or playing to 50 people, depends on who shows up on the night. Room seats 50 ppl so unfortunately no bands. Please email us on holbeckwmc@gmail.com if you'd like more details.

    I went there this week and found it very pleasant except for the terrible heat due to the weather. The guys running it ( Ben greaves.. I think and his buddies were very nice and friendly .. oh and talented) Definitely worth supporting. Ben mentioned another one on a Thursday he runs too but I bloody forgot the name...it was in Leeds centre too.
