Places to go for Open Mic Nights

Rants and Raves

I always end up at the right place, at the right time, to catch some college kid doing his cover of Dave Matthews Band. Again. For the 34th time. Also, what is up with Rochester Cafe's insisting on haveing an event EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. It's impossible to find a cafe that is not in the middle of open mic night, band night, or mancala night to sit and work in. Sheesh. - FarMcKon
