A *culture is not optional project
Virtual open mic night this Thursday!
Are you looking for a creative outlet during quarantine? Join the Lowrys Bookstore Open Mic crew this Thursday, April 2 at 6:45pm via Zoom! For those of us struggling mentally, physically, or socially in this time of crisis, witnessing and producing art offer us important solace and solidarity.
As some of you may know, Aundrea Sayrie, Becca Someday, and Mitchie Moore have hosted monthly open mic nights at Lowry’s Bookstore for those in the community interested in sharing their talents. Though we are unable to gather physically, the Open Mic crew is inviting all audiences and artists to gather virtually for its “Covid Mic Night”! April 2 will feature the incredible DJ Problematic Black Hottie hailing from Detroit, MI whose work centers the feminine and black experience. You will also have the opportunity to submit your work by video to www.covidopenmic.com prior to the zoom call.
