All genres/styles welcome; no full bands or straight-up DJ sets.
DJs: Look for more in our series of open decks events, or just email email@example.com with “open decks” and your DJ name in the subject, with a bio and any social/music links.
BANDS: We’re working on a full-band open mic night. If you’re interested, message the CU open mic page (linked below) with a band link.
OTHERWISE: If you can plug it in (acoustic guitar, bass, laptop), we’re good. Any backing tracks must be instrumentals (no rapping/singing over a track with full vocals), and you’re responsible for controlling them via the aux on stage.
If you’re looking for a gig at the Canopy, this is a good way in as one of our booking people runs the night.
Doors open at 8pm. List goes out shortly thereafter.
FREE for 21+ (under 21 is $2 cover).
