The Pitch's pick for Best Open Mic Night in 2008

Absolutely Anything Goes Open Mic Night at the Brick 

The Pitch's pick for Best Open Mic Night in 2008

The Brick takes this one for its willingness to accept all sorts of craziness from the amateurs on Wednesday nights. An open mic for MCs at the Peanut can result in some great performances. Same goes for poetry slams, which are even trickier to pull off. Things are looser at the Brick — damned if you know what's coming next. The bar's commitment to allowing anyone to get up and perform makes this the most spellbinding showcase in the city. Where else can you see a struggling musician; a new comic; and a man doing an interpretive dance to Cyndi Lauper's ode to female masturbation, "She Bop," all in one night? Without having to pay a cover? Well played, Brick.
Wednesdays, 2008
