Wednesday just got a whole lot more exciting!
Fat City Entertainment and Old Pineville Premium Pub are partnering up on Wednesday nights to bring you an awesome Open Mic Night! It is just what you need to liven things up mid-week.
Old Pineville Premium Pub is located on Old Pineville Road, just off the Blue Line light rail in lower South End. Nibble on redneck egg rolls or house-made fries while watching your fellow Charlotteans belting it out on stage. Every Wednesday brings new acts, so no two shows will ever be the same.
The pub’s menu is ample enough to satisfy a picky eater with the usual bar fare: tacos, wings, and burgers. However, Old Pineville can also please even the most discerning palate with dishes like Mediterranean salmon and their newest offering-beef brisket. They also have plenty of options for those looking to stick to a more liquid diet.
The open mic show will run from 8-10 pm and will include various act like stand-up comics, singers, musicians, spoken word artists, and maybe even a magician or two! Come laugh and cheer for the local talent, who knows, you might see your neighbor, one of your coworkers, or even your BFF!
Or maybe you are ready to grab that mic for yourself…
Are you an aspiring stand-up comedian or musician? Perhaps you have always dreamed of cutting loose and belting it out on stage. Well, now is your chance! Sign up and showcase your talent at the Fat City Open Mic Night and live out your dreams! As a little bonus, the first five acts to sign up get a free drink. Call it liquid fortification ;)
What kind of acts are we looking for? Basically, anything you can do on a stage in front of a live audience...that doesn’t involve removing your clothes. People love to see stand-up comedy, singers, solo musicians, spoken word poets, dancers, magicians, balloon-animal artists, and puppet masters. Not sure if your act qualifies, ask! Tell us what it is that you do (even better if you can send a link to a video) and we will let you know if it will fly. Hint: Most likely the answer will be yes. Come on Charlotte talent, we are looking for you!
Oh, one last thing! Fat City is currently looking for a musically inclined co-host with comedy chops to help coordinate the Open Mic activities. If you are interested in joining the Fat City Entertainment team send over a brief introduction with a resume and/or links to you in action.
