January’s Outloud Open Mike Coffeehouse for poetry, prose, and music kicks off the New Year with accomplished orator John Sturm.
Sturm’s repertoire of literary and pop culture material delivery includes wonderfully eclectic renditions that range all the way from Shakespeare and Cummings to Einstein and even Sinatra — offered with humor, intellectuality and a spirit of human pathos.
Our Open Mike sign up starts at 7:15pm — performances and readings run from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. Each performer is allotted 10 minutes. Outloud’s creative and nurturing atmosphere is always receptive, warm and respectful.
There is no cover — however donations are accepted to cover event costs ( including refreshments ) and to support local charity organizations.
Outloud meets the 4th Wednesday of each month at The Beebe Estate’s art exhibit space at 235 West Foster, Melrose ( Go to beebeestate.com for more about The Beebe Estate ).
Parking available on grounds, behind the estate; entrance is at the back of the building.
