Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions I've been asked as I put together this site. If you don't see your question here, shoot me an email at!

How do I get my open mic on

Shoot me an email me at with all the details. I’m gonna want to know the following:

  • Where is it located?
  • What day does it take place?
  • Does it take place every week? If not, how frequently does it take place?
  • What time does it start and end?
  • What time is sign up?
  • Is the event all ages?
  • Does the place venue alcohol?
  • Are there any house instruments?

Don’t worry if you don’t have answers to every single one of these, I’ll probably swing by the open mic to confirm before I list on the site! It also might take me a bit of time to get it on the site, I’ve got a full time job on top of managing this site.

Does it cost anything to list an open mic on

Nope, it’s totally free!

You have an error in your information. What’s the best way to let you know?

I appreciate you looking out! Email me at with what I got wrong and I’ll get it taken care of 💯

Why did you build

I built because I want to build Sacramento’s music scene by making it as easy as possible to find music and participate.

Will you ever include comedy only open mics?

Probably not. I think it’s better to do one thing well than a bunch of things okay. I don’t really understand the comedy scene and I’m not really funny either 🤷‍♂️

You’re not out of luck though. Most of the open mics listed on here are comedy friendly!

Also, the fine people at are in your corner. They’ve got an awesome calendar of open mics around the area, so I’d definitely recommend you check that out.

Will you ever include poetry only open mics?

Like comedy open mics, probably not: I’d rather stick to something I understand and do it well.

Where can I find more info on Sacramento open mics?

Check out, they’re a great resource with tons of open mics! For comedy open mics, check out
