"There's a new Writer's Night Open Mic at Cornerstone Tavern in Raleigh's Glenwood South on Monday nights. The focus is on original songs. See https://www.facebook.com/writersnightmondays and drop them a message if you plan on…"
"Well tonight was a total waste of time. Drove to Apex to find the Wake Zone mysteriously closed for the evening, despite what their web site said. Then headed over to the Upper Deck in Cary because their web site claimed there was an…"
"Just a heads up that the Wake Zone open mic is this Thursday 8/15 at 7pm, I believe. I've also discovered one in Zebulon this Saturday 8/17 at the Eclectic Intellectual cafe. I think it's new. Sign up is 6:30pm."
