Open Mic Nights have been running for over 5 years.
Want to sign up for an Open Mic Night? Check out The Rules.
- If you're new to the mic add dcjacobs on wechat or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask for a spot.
- We take 15 pre sign-ups. if it's a full night and you sign up too late, you can get here early and sign up with the host in person. We cap it at 18.
- If you performed the week before you have to wait till Wednesday at noon to sign up
- Each performer gets four minutes of stage time (might be slightly longer if sign ups are low.)
- Host will give an order of their own choosing about an hour before the show. You can request to go earlier or later, but it's more or less up to the host.
- Basically any topic is fine, although steering clear of Chinese hot button issues is probably always a good idea though, as we're in Beijing after all.
