We’re gonna keep this brief.
All the way back in May, we took our act to World Cafe Live in Philly for their Philly Rising Open Mic Night. The good people of World Cafe Live must have liked us, because we were selected the winners of the evening. They they invited us back for the Philly Rising Showcase in July, in which we performed along with all the other weekly winners in May.
And guess what? We won that night, too!
We could get into a whole diatribe about how odd it is to “compete” against other musicians, especially when the Open Stage hosts so many different styles of music. But we’re not gonna do that. Instead, we’re gonna invite you to the Philly Rising Open Stage on Monday, September 30th, where we will be the Featured Artist of the night.
What’s this mean? It means that after the host (and our pal) Boy Wonder kicks things off and several incredibly talented musicians perform ten-minute sets, we will do our dork-rock thing for a half-hour (starting around 8:15). And then, you’ll get to see even more talented musicians do their thing.
The best part: it’s all FREE. The Philly Rising Open Stage is a fantastic weekly showcase of musicians, some experienced, some brand-new. Hot Breakfast! is a big fan of open-mic nights; we’ve gotten some gigs through them, but more importantly, we’ve seen some wonderful musicians and met some great people. Sure, come for the Hot Breakfast!, but stay for the rest of the entertainment – it’s sure to be a great night. Plus, the noms are tasty and the drinks are plentiful – what’s not to love?
