Begun in 2002, Open Stage provides a fun, supportive, and informal way for guitarists of every level to experience the joy of playing in public. We focus primarily on acoustic, finger-style, and classical guitar, and maintain a format similar to many other open mic events. There’s a simple sign-up sheet for performers, who each get 8 to 10 minutes (2 to 4 songs). Folks usually hang out after playing to swap tips, share music, and just socialize with other guitar nerds.


Second Sunday each month, from 2 till 4 pm.
