Americanaween Open Mic Fright Night

This week's Americana Open Mic is all about Halloween. We're looking for spooky, scary, creepy, dark and ghastly songs, and we know you're up for that challenge! Be sure to dress up as we'll have prizes for best costumes, along with $2 Halloween jello shots! Keena Graham will, as always, be your gHostess with the Mostess.

$5 Performers / $3 General Admission
Doors @ 7 PM

Performances begin at 8pm sharp with 10 participants getting a 15 minute slot. The winner (determined by crowd response, our gracious host Keena, and the RLC Staff) receives a $25 RLC gift certificate, a recording of their performance featured on, and a spot in our Americana Showcase (stay tuned for more details on that).

Online sign ups end at 6pm day-of-show. Good luck, and make us proud!
