Come share your music at what has been described by many as the hottest open mic night in town! (2012 CITY choice awards - Best Open Mic) Each performer is allowed two songs. Performers that don't use "songs" (comedians, poets, improvisational music, etc) are allowed up to 5-7 minutes for their set (we give them a five minute warning to let them know to wrap things up in the next 1-2 minutes). Sign up sheet goes out about an hour or so before open mic begins, and order is determined on a first come/first serve basis. First person to sign up gets an extra song! WE PROVIDE: The PA system (mics, speakers, etc), guitar cables, an old beat-up piano, a host/sound engineer. Sometimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own stuff! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). We do not recommended full bands, however we will allow it as long as the musicians are respectful of others' time and space (and play at a respectful volume for the audience). Drummers must bring in their drums before open mic begins (8:30) and set them up off to the side as to make for a speedy transition and not disrupt others' performances. Open mic begins around 8:30pm and goes until the night dies down (usually 11:00-11:30ish). Any other questions can be emailed to the show's host Willy O'Riley at willyoriley@lovincup.com.

Doors Open: 7:00pm
Today, the Brooklyn Brewery is continuing to thrive, spreading good beer around the world. Bars and restaurants from Texas to Sweden to Australia proudly pour Brooklyn beer and display our iconic logo in great cities and far-flung reaches. Here in Brooklyn, Garrett and his team push the boundaries of brewing with an expanded barrel aging program housed in the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard down the road from the brewery and an extensive roster of experimental batches tucked away for study (and tasting.) The borough itself has been revitalized around the Brooklyn Brewery, with over 100 businesses proudly dubbing themselves Brooklyn. Entrepreneurs, dreamers and creators have created successful companies ranging from the Red Hook Winery and Mast Brothers Chocolate to tech giants including Makerbot, Kickstarter and Tumblr. Steiner Studios, located not far from the Brooklyn Brewery barrel aging program in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, is the largest television and film studio outside of Hollywood. It is an exciting time to be from Brooklyn. The brewery is also currently planning an expansion site to boost production and send even more beer to old and new markets worldwide. Even with all the projects, experiments and ideas flying thick, our Tasting Room right here in Brooklyn continues to welcome all comers. Next time you’re in New York, come say hello and share a pint with the people behind the beer.

Immediately following the Labatt's/Park Point Fest in the courtyard, the party continues inside with the The Mighty High & Dry!   With the influence of Rolling Stones, Black Keys, and Neil Young audible within their performances, The Mighty High & Dry’s sound shines through each song, rooted by Kyle Vock’s (mostly upright) deep-digging bass, Chris Teal’s dynamic and crisp drumming, and Alan Murphy’s guitar hooks and stylistically flexible voice. With lyrical tones that range from humanistic (“Here’s To The King”, “Trust Me Brother”), Dionysian (“Hangover Bridge”, “Shine”) to animalistic (“The Snake”, “Love and War”), MHD paints life’s adventure as an ever-unfolding mirror, which hangs over an altar with full bar. MHD’s self-titled debut album is scheduled for release in August of 2013 and boasts 14 tracks that resonate as wildly as the favorite rock albums from your past and future. Murphy’s song “Dam” has been chosen as a semi-finalist in the 2012 International Songwriting competition in the AAA category.   "Influenced by a veritable hall of fame list of rock musicians, this Rochester-based quartet is gaining some acclaim of their own. The Mighty High & Dry's sound is rooted in soulful blues, but will surprise you with its ability to funk it up with the best of 'em. The grooves are infectious, the songwriting solid, and the musicianship workmanlike. It all adds up to Heartland Rock with an almost jazzy feel. The group is scheduled to release its self-titled debut album this May, and is already receiving critical praise." - David Yockel, Jr. City Newspaper   http://www.reverbnation.com/themightyhighdry

The Majestics Ron Stackman, Jim Schwarz and Lou LaVilla began performing together in 1972. The following year they joined Bahama Mama, one of the first American bands to embrace Reggae music. When the group split up in 1980, Stackman, Schwarz and Lavilla remained together and formed the Majestics. Originally a trio with Ron on Hammond B-3, clavinet and guitar, Jim on bass and Lou on drums, the Majestics' steadily developed a fan base in upstate New York, eventually catching the attention of the legendary Lee "Scratch" Perry. In 1982, the group backed Perry when he opened for the Clash during their historic run at New York City's Bonds International Casino, then traveled with the music icon to Kingston, Jamaica to record his "Mystic Miracle Star" LP. The Majestics later filled out their sound, enlisting guitarist Rudy Valentino (with whom they recorded their 1984 EP, "Future Now") and Trinidadian percussionist, Brother James. The band performed extensively throughout the eastern United States during the 1980s, opening for Burning Spear on two tours and appearing with a veritable who's who of Reggae music including Peter Tosh, Toots and the Maytals, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Yellowman, Third World, The Gladiators, The  Wailers, Eek-A-Mouse, Dillinger, The Heptones, Jimmy Cliff, Ziggy Marley, Black Uhuru, Mutaburuka and others. Now, 35 years after the band's formation, the Majestics' original trio is back along with guitarist Kevin Hart. Original roots music along with versions of classic Reggae gems. Roots. Rock. Reggae.   Noble Vibes Hailing from Rochester NY, Noble Vibes is an exciting new voice in reggae music. Since hitting the music scene in 2013, the band has earned a reputation as one of the most dynamic original acts in Western NY. Noble Vibes’ energetic live shows feature original reggae anthems, along with reggae classics and choice deep cuts. The highlight of their recent summer of festival and club dates was supporting the Wailers at Rochester’s Party in the Park.

THE BIRTH OF BOSSA NOVA BRADLEY BROTHERS Bossa Nova Bradley Brothers came to fruition during the long, cold winter of 2015. Thinking warm thoughts, they hunkered down and learned many classics of the genre, including songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Luis Bonfa, Marcos Valle and others. Mark (tenor saxophone, percussion, vocals), Scott (keyboards, trumpet) and Todd Bradley (vocals, guitar) have played with a variety of ensembles, individually (The Fox Sisters, The Bill Tiberio Group, The Hi-Risers) and collectively (The Essentials, The Salamanders). Bassist Brian Williams (Bobby Henrie & The Goners, The Djangoners and too many others to mention!) lays down the foundation for the Bossa Nova Bradley Brothers as they bring it on in English and in Portuguese! Special guest will be Julio Pabon on percussion!

8:00pm - Violet Mary All That We Seem is not just another album by Violet Mary. For the five-piece outfit, this fourth effort is their most ambitious work to date – where no style is immune from their hands. While their familiar blues-rock remains a vital force, Violet Mary expands their palette with journeys into Radiohead-inspired alt-rock, rollicking power pop, blue-eyed funk, string-driven folk balladry, orchestral whimsy, and even tunes with a social conscience rarely heard in their previous albums. “I think that the album was meant to be diverse (as always), but with a defining structure lyrically as well as musically,” recounts bassist and co-producer Martin Dorren. “The lyrical themes are more hybrids of social and personal reflection and how both are intertwined within each other... both chickens and both eggs. Musically, we tried to separate the ‘darker’ energy on the first disk from the ‘lighter’ on the second. It was our hope that the colors of each song then would have a certain continuity, not unlike a musical suite.” The band returned to Belly of the Whale Studio, their creative home away from home since the band’s first record in 2009, in October 2014 with a batch of songs unlike any they’d previously released. They each had a dark and deeply personal tone to them, like a person staring into the abyss. Yet, as tracking and further writing evolved and some lighter songs were brought to the table, it became clear that the record was, in fact, a two-volume affair. According to guitarist and percussionist Scott Cranfill, ”After struggling with cutting down the songs we had written to a typical album length, we simply couldn't part with any of them. We also realized that they somewhat separated into two groups by musical feel, so it seemed like a natural fit to release a double album.” “All That We Seem is a further exploration of our various musical and lyrical sensibilities,” notes Dorren. “It incorporates different styles within one song as well as diverse interpretations given to each song as a personality. We try to do this as more of a fun adventure, though... For instance, a song like ‘Here with You’ has an admittedly 70s vibe to it, simply because we thought it would be fun to explore that.” Violet Mary strives for collaboration through empathy for each other’s musical roots. These roots dictate the message that is trying to come out in each member’s vision for a piece. The desire for each voice to be heard often creates something that is unlike any of the members’ original intentions. “Many bands deal with inner conflict, both individually and amongst the members,” Dorren observes, implying that Violet Mary is not immune to either. “This is not uncommon for sensitive artists that are passionate about their work. Violet Mary's sensitivity and passion is shared with one goal in mind: collaborative expression.” All That We Seem is different from anything you have heard from Violet Mary, but breathe in deep, listen to the musical beauty come out, and savor it all – including one brilliant stop-and-start of an ending. http://www.violetmary.com     10:30pm - The Ghost Peppers We play funky bluesy soul music that makes you shake your money maker! https://www.facebook.com/TheGhostPeppers?fref=photo
