Open Mic Rules
Be respectful of performers.
Be respectful of your audience.
Please mute your mic during performances when you are not performing. You can use the chat feature to communicate during performances.
We'll announce at the beginning of the event if there is time for either 1 or 2 songs. It depends on how many people sign up, but so far there has been room for 2 songs with a little extra space at the end for another round.
If there is space on the list after everyone has performed, the list will be opened up, again for performers to play, again.
If your performance has some material that may be offensive or has a trigger warning, please clear with Alyssandra in advance.
Open Mic Tips
During the week before Open Mic:
Practice your song!
Become familiar with zoom. Try a "meeting" with some friends to get used to it.
Test your mic. Is the signal clear?
Test your camera at night. Is the lighting nice? Find the perfect spot.
Watch this video and optimize your Zoom audio settings.
During Open Mic:
Have fun AND be a good listener.
Mute when you're not performing.
Try a fun virtual background!
Use the chat to share your music and project links that you want other listeners to check out.
Check out other performers links, and follow their artist profiles on Spotify, facebook pages, instagram pages, etc.
