From the event's FB page:

"Bring your songs, poetry, comedy, and stories. Help build a creative community while honing your artistic craft. $5 cover, all ages. Beer, wine, and light snacks are available for purchase in the café."

I've been to a Songwriter Circle at Artichoke before, but never the Open Mic night (at least not since they moved to this location from SE Hawthorne a number of years ago). Interested to see what it's all about! :)
