CaRaVaN Open Mic + Open Stage is a weekly "Anything Goes" open mic that began in the fall of 2011. Music of all genres, spoken word, comedy, magic, dance, storytelling, or any other number of other unique performances could hit the stage on any given Monday. CaRaVaN regularly features artists with a wide range of skill levels -- from experienced performers trying out new things to folks taking the stage for the first time -- and we welcome them all!
We’ve been mostly online since March 2020 (with a summer stretch in person on the patio at X-Cues), putting on weekly virtual #caravanatyourhome events, first on Instagram Live and later trying out Google Meet.
Now, we're using a new platform that allows us to livestream every show to our YouTube and Facebook accounts simultaneously! Anyone who wants to perform can go to that show's StreamYard link from their computer or phone's web browser -- it's so easy to join and no software or account is needed. Musicians can perform 2 songs, while poets, comedians, improvisers, dancers, and others will get approximately 5 minutes.
CaRaVaN is entirely volunteer-run, and is completely funded by donations, sponsorships, grants, and the organizers' own funds if needed. Every event is always free, but donations are certainly welcome, and can help us with costs such as new equipment, advertising, web hosting, and graphics. Donations are graciously accepted by sending an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
