Steph Sabelli's Open Mic ending..

In the first photo here you see Steph Sabelli explaining to the sparse audience at the Under St. Marks Theatre why she has decided to end her weekly sunday night open mic at 94 St. Marks Place. I, having just discovered this open mic, am saddened by this...Steph says it has been poorly attended lately and she wants to concentrate on other things now..There is still an open mic night here every tuesday(Penny's open mic), but I like the sunday night one. Most acts are stand up comedy, with some musicians and poets occasionally taking the stage..Basically you can get up there and do whatever the hell you want as long as you're done in six minutes. Everyone there seems to know each other and the atmosphere is fun and kind of bizarrely cozy..You can buy beer there and there is even free candy! Weekly regulars include Master Lee and the always amusing Touching You. Touching You did a marvelous song last week that went something along the lines of.."If your vagina caught on fire I would still love you. If your tits and your ass got burned off in a crash I would still love you just as much..."

Anyway, Steph Sabelli's Open Mic is running for three more sundays only, so people should swing by and say farewell.
