Open mic, insert voice
In much the same way as a mother cat brings a wounded mouse to her kittens in order to teach them valuable hunting skills, so too the venerable “open mic” has been a proving ground for fledgling performers to cut their teeth since Elvis first sang “Old Shep.”
Our fair city has a few open mics, but there’s a new game in town. The all-new Granfalloon at 400 E. Main Street is sponsoring its own open mic, hosted by Chattanooga rising star, Nick Lutsko.
Nick, already known as a skillful performer and popular entertainer, now takes up the mantle of “open mic” emcee every Monday night at Granfalloon with sign ups at 7 p.m. and performances running from 8 to 11 p.m. The event isn’t limited to singer/songwriters—all performers are welcome, including improv actors, standup comedians, dancers and poets.
If you are a performer and you’re looking for a place to showcase your talents, hone your skills or just network with other performers, Nick Lutsko and Granfalloon have got you covered. Granfalloon will feature $3 pints and the kitchen will be open until 10 p.m.
