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 eight minutes for their set. 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. Oftentimes there are musicians hanging around to play for you if you are a singer without an accompanist. WE DON'T PROVIDE: Guitars, guitar/bass amps, drums. Unless you are a singer or pianist, bring your own instruments! Our format is best suited to solo and smaller group performances with acoustic instruments (guitar, piano, etc). Though it is not recommended, we will allow a full band to play as long as the musicians are respectful of others time and space. If you are a drummer, it is suggested that you bring in your 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.

TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLINE AT THE TICKETWEB LINK ABOVE, OR IN-STORE AT LOVIN' CUP!!! The Charlie Hunter/Scott Amendola Duo Rolls Out Four Thematic 5-Tune Digital EPs Over the Next Four Months on iTunes Exploring Music By Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Hank Williams, and The Cars Since reuniting to tour and record as a power duo in 2010, New Jersey’s seven-string guitar wizard Charlie Hunter and Berkeley’s drummer extraordinaire Scott Amendola have covered many thousands of miles on the road and released two acclaimed albums: 2012’s recession-inspired Not Getting Behind is the New Getting Ahead and 2013’s Pucker. The first CD focused exclusively on Hunter’s compositions and the second showcased Amendola’s writing. But with the viability of the CD looking more tenuous than ever for indie artists, the duo is forging a new path for disseminating their music while maintaining the programmatic potential of the album format. Over the next four months Hunter and Amendola are releasing four 5-track EPs, each focusing on the music of a particular artist or act. The project opens with ingenious distillations of Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn gems such as “Rockin’ In Rhythm,” “Daydream” and “Mood Indigo.” From Cole Porter’s songbook, they interpret standards, including “Too Darn Hot,” “Every Time We Say Goodbye” and “Anything Goes.” Country music and jazz are often cast as antithetical styles, but the truth is far more complicated. For Hunter and Amendola, a great song is simply a great song, and they find plenty of grist for improvisation in Hank Williams’ classics like “Cold Cold Heart,” and “Ramblin’ Man.” They find fertile ground even further afield from typical jazz fare in the music of new wave rockers The Cars, digging into hits like “Candy-O,” and “Let’s Go.” “The idea is to do these four and see how people respond,” Hunter says. “We started thinking why do we keep making 10-song CDs. I don’t necessarily want to do 10 Hank Williams songs, but five can work well. As long as the song is good we can put it through the mill, like what we did with T.J. Kirk and the Bob Marley album I made.” Amendola and Hunter first played together two decades ago when Hunter was a rising star on the Bay Area acid jazz scene and Amendola was a recent arrival from the East Coast. The collaborated in Hunter’s trio and the Grammy-nominated quartet T.J. Kirk, but didn’t have many opportunities to work together after Hunter relocated to Brooklyn. They reconnected in 2010 through clarinetist Ben Goldberg’s earthy project Go Home, which led to a series of duo gigs around Europe and the US. “It’s always s been amazing whenever we play, but it keeps growing, getting more intuitive,” Amendola says. “What Charlie does is so uncanny. When you watch him play, it’s hard to understand what he’s doing, but when you close your eyes it’s so beautiful and deep and compelling.” http://www.scottamendola.com http://www.charliehunter.com

9PM - SPROCKET - https://www.facebook.com/SprocketNYC This is the Sprocket you are looking for! Original music from Brooklyn. Sprocket was formed in August of 2011. Sprocket likes to rock! 11PM - HAEWA - https://www.facebook.com/haewa.music Haewa was formed in late 2011 in Rochester, New York. From deep pychedelia to funk and more, they create pulsating grooves which are complimented by textural blankets of ambience. These energetic and at times meditative improvisations lead you in and out of songs, both instrumental and lyrical. No two shows will ever be the same, taking audiences on journeys through landscapes of sound. The tone to the music is entirely organic, focusing on the human interpretation of guitar, bass and drum set, with small touches of subtle electronics (synthesizer, pedals and drum pad) to help deepen the collective array of sounds between the three members. With these tools, Ben Chilbert, Collin Jones and Riley Dichairo successfully transport the listener to a brand new sonic dimension. With the release of their debut album “Deadwet Soundwaves” in November of 2012, Haewa clearly displayed their clean studio sound and ear for detail in a cohesive musical experience that flows from beginning to end.
