Cool I love open mics. Why doesn't someone comment who has performed there. Tell us about it.

As you know I have performed at Incubator. I would love to hear from other people too...

Well, lick my elbow, I've had the pleasure to perform at both open mics, Alberta Street and the Incubator. Both are top notch. Hosted by talented personalities that make all feel welcome. Each has their own atmosphere that feed the performer and audience alike. Alberta Street mainly attracts musicians, while Incubator has more of a theater feel to it. Without a doubt, these two open mics are the best I've come across in my Portland experience so far.
