Acoustic Routes' Sunday concert at Meow this month is an open mic night, or blackboard concert - a chance for performers to put their names on the board and do a couple of songs. An excellent way to try out a new song or two, or introduce the audience to a new line-up.
The sound system will be going, with an operator on hand to plug you in. To allow time for setting up each act, the number of spots will be limited to 10, so come early if you want to perform, as it will be first in, first served.
Your host - the inimitable Roy McGuinness.
And a great way to get in the groove for the Blackboard concert - Richard Klein and friends will be having their usual Americana jam session from 4 to 7 pm. You can hear some of the Wellington region's finest players and singers of country, blues, Cajun, old-timey, boogie-woogie and all-around good-time American music, and it's an open session so you can join in.
A night of total acoustic participation.
