Heading into its 10th year and still attracting great lineups and crowds week after week, the NEPA Scene Open Mic continues every Tuesday night at The V-Spot Bar in Scranton! This free weekly event gives up-and-coming and established local musicians, comedians, poets, magicians, actors, performance artists, dancers, and more the platform to showcase their talents in front of an audience, meet other artists, and hang out together while giving each act some extra publicity through the live stream and photos.
 
Sign-ups are from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM, and while NEPA Scene can take a limited amount of sign-ups after that, arriving early guarantees a spot. The show runs from about 8:00 PM through midnight or later. Every act gets around 10-12 minutes of stage time, sometimes more if time permits. NEPA Scene encourages original material.
 
Everyone participating will be featured in the live stream on NEPA Scene's Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Twitch. Photos of each act will also be made available for download in the NEPA Scene Open Mic Facebook group, giving artists professional shots that they can use for their own promotion.
 
This a great opportunity to show off and develop your talent, as well as meet fellow artists in the local scene who can help you book shows or get to that next level. Many artists who have come to NEPA Scene's open mics over the years have gotten paid gigs and made many great friends and business connections. Let NEPA Scene's extensive online reach help you! For those who are looking for a unique night of entertainment, look no further than this unpredictable variety show. You can watch it online, but it's even better in person!
 
Artists must be 18 or older, and those who are 18-20 years old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Parents or legal guardians with an 18, 19, or 20-year-old must provide valid IDs for both parent and child in order to enter the venue.
 
Technical notes for performers: NEPA Scene has a 2 microphone set up and 2 standard cables to plug in a guitar or bass. If you need any other equipment, you must bring it with you. Full bands are welcome to perform. The V-Spot Bar has a big stage with plenty of room, as well as a five-piece Mapex house drum set that anyone may use (you can bring your own kit if you choose, but this should make setting up and tearing down faster and easier). If you have pre-recorded music for your set, bring your tracks on your phone or laptop, not a flash drive. NEPA Scene will have an audio jack that can plug your device directly into the soundboard.
