OPEN MIC THURSDAYS continue. Because we remain closed due to the global pandemic COVID-19, we will host our Open Mic online via ZOOM. Because we had such an awesome first virtual open mic, we will bring them to you TWICE per month instead of once. Look for MoAD Open Mic this month on the FIRST & THIRD THURSDAYS during the closure. Because we love MoAD and MoAD loves you!
