An open mic is a show that takes place in entertainment establishments. Some bars, pubs or cafeterias usually offer a small space, setting up a stage for the show.
The host of the open mic warms up the public for an amazing show. Several artists usually go up and individually act for ten minutes on average. In this case, seven.
There are several themes for an open mic. They are usually about music, poetry recital, magic or comedy.
At the bar Club Cronopios in Barcelona an open mic takes place every Monday. We discovered that it’s such an interesting and different way to practice our listening comprehension skills, while educating ourselves.
Next time maybe we’ll even be brave enough to participate!
