Americana Open Mic feat. SOFT CACTUS

Red Light Café's Americana Open Mic is Atlanta's showcase for the best Bluegrass, Roots Rock, Country & Western, Folk, Blues, Jazz, and all other things Americana. This week, we're shining the spotlight on Massachusetts' Soft Cactus who'll be opening and closing the night as part of their East Coast Summer Tour!

Sign ups begins at 7pm sharp, Soft Cactus will perform at set at 7:30pm, then Open Mic performers begins taking the stage at 8:30pm. Soft Cactus will then wrap up the night with a closing set at 10:30pm.

For the open mic performers, the usual rules still apply: Solo performers or bands are a-ok, and we welcome all live Americana acts (i.e., no tracks or pre-recorded music)!

$3 Door
Doors @ 7 PM

A band with strong musical ideas, that is unafraid to draw musical inspiration from anywhere, Soft Cactus covers a wide musical spectrum while still maintaining a focused and distinctive sound. Live shows filled with white-hot intensity, subtle musical nuances, and a focus on composition will have you always singing along and wanting more.

Growing up in a new era of musical exposure unlike any other, where immeasurable amounts of music is available within seconds, where genres shuffle from one to the next, where music library’s are stored in a pocket, Soft Cactus absorbs all that they hear, distill musical textures, then fuse it all into their own compositions.

Playing on stages all across New England, Soft Cactus relentlessly has been performing, while continually perfecting and evolving their sound. Soft Cactus’ music is not about being confined in a box, it’s about putting together a sound that defines them, defines their time, defines Soft Cactus.
