3 Meetup Groups match “open-mic” near Austin, TX
We are musicians, comedians, poets, magicians, jugglers, actors, dancers etc...people who enjoy performing or watching performances from local artists and amateur talent. We are dedicated to promoting and encouraging local Austin performers. We plan Open Mic Nights for amateurs and look for late night music acts to perform in North Austin.
The Austin Writers Roulette features a different monthly theme and line up of artists who love to perform their original written works such as poetry, essays, spoken word, singer-songwriting, or excerpts from novels. Artists also have the opportunity to set up a vendor table at the roulette. Although the roulette is not an open mic, interested artists who would like to read for an upcoming event should first attend a roulette. And of course, performance art lovers are always welcome!
