Thread Name: Windsor/Detroit Area Open Mic
Subject: RE: Windsor/Detroit Area Open Mic
OK, folks. Maybe I'm showing myself to be an utter fool for doing this, but I'm gonna shoot myself in the foot and tell you something. This open mic is the only one I've ever heard of that offers prizes every week and I'm happy as hell to have won two of them.
Well, I won one. The other I got because nobody else showed up. I half-jokingly told Clinton I was gonna ride this gravy train to a new 12-string I want, and if you other jokers don't come out to make things interesting, I'll continue to do just that. I've got $100 toward it so far and I'm sure as hell not too proud to keep on.
The long and short of it is — Clinton is running an open mic and I'd go out to support him, even if there weren't any prizes involved. But since there are, I think I'd be a fool not to go every time I can. The worst that can happen is that I get to do a few tunes and hear music and performers I've never heard before. The best of it is that I get to do a few tunes and hear music and performers I've never heard before and win a prize to boot.
Can't beat that!
Hope to see some more faces Monday night.
