The open mic showcase at the Cubby Bear went very well last night. I was surprised at how good all the bands were, and how well the sound and organization was run. It was a room filled with people who care about the music they do, as well as about other people’s music. I was expecting a night full of suck, but all the bands were better than many paid-admission shows I’ve been to. I’d definitely recommend playing the showcase to bands who want performance experience or just some laid-back fun. Hell, you could practically use it to rehearse 3 songs a week with a full sound setup.
