Open For a Big Shot Shootout • Round 1 concert at Red Light Café, Atlanta, GA
, 7pm – Tickets are $3 Door

An open mic is supposed to be a breeding ground for tomorrow's headliners. To show you how serious we are about "promoting from within", we're announcing a new round of open mic competitions.

Open For a Big Shot Shootout: Hosted by Kahle Davis

Michelle Malone is playing Saturday, May 18th, at Red Light Café.

You think you've got what it takes to open for someone like Michelle Malone?  Send an email to us at and include links to your music. We'll assign set times well in advance so participants can tell their fans when to show up. We'll pick a winner every Wednesday night. Winners from April 24th, May 1st, May 8th and May 15th will then play "in the round" early in the evening on May 18th and a winner will be chosen! The winner will then do a 45-minute set right there on the spot to open the show for Michelle Malone!
