Open Mic at RootStock on Thursday

By
From page A7 | January 15, 2014 |

Sam and Lori Hawk will play host to Open Mic night from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at RootStock, 22 Main St. in Winters. This event is free.

The third Thursday open mic night focuses on music and musicians of all skill levels, from the beginning student to the seasoned professional, to forget the demands of public performances and practice their art among peers in a supportive environment.

The audience tends to consist of mainly musicians, although the public is always welcome. Since the vibe is less demanding than the typical bar or restaurant, musicians tend to use open mic night to try out new material, so you never really know what’s going to happen or who is going to show up.

It’s also a great place for beginners to practice dealing with the on-stage jitters. The night ends with a “closing jam,” in which anyone is welcome to grab their instruments and play along. It’s sometimes an amazing blend of styles, and at other times it’s a cacophony, but it always celebrates the joy of sharing music.

Due to the popularity of Open Mic night, RootStock has added a monthly second night focused specifically on poetry and spoken word from 7 to 9 p.m. on the fourth Thursday, Jan. 23.
