Check our calendar for dates & times and to make sure the mic is still on the schedule as sometimes they are bumped for private parties or special events.
Do NOT bring in outside food or beverage.
PERFORMERS PLEASE READ BELOW...
Our open mics are free to watch or perform after making any purchase from QED. Do NOT bring in outside food or beverage. Making a purchase helps keep our open mics free. We have items as low as $2.
To perform, sign ups are in person and first come, first serve. All who sign up in person, get to perform approximately 3-5 mins of stage time. That can vary depending on the mic & how many people show but 4 mins is a safe bet.
When you sign up, your name is entered into a bucket and drawn at random. Sign up begins 1/2 hour before posted show time.
MUSICAL ACTS PLEASE READ:
We are more than happy to have you perform with backing tracks by plugging your phone into our sound system, but you MUST let the hosts know before the show so they can accommodate you. Late arrivals will not be accommodated.
It's a small space with great acoustics. But if you do still need to plug in to the sound system bring your own quarter inch cable to plug in to our DI box which is accessible on stage.
NOTE: Read QED's COVID policy here. To purchase tickets you will need to affirm that you have read and agree to the QED policy.
