      Third Thursday women's open mic Feb. 17

      Join us Thursday February 17 for Third Thursday women's open mic talent showcase at Montclair Women's Cultural Arts, 1650 Mountain Blvd. in Oakland, corner of Mountain and Thornhill off Hwy. 13, 7:30 pm. 510-654-4088 for info.  $ 7 - 10 sliding scale at the door.

      Open mic spots fill up fast.  See info. below about how to sign up.  This is an all-women event and all women are welcome: an upbeat community gathering to connect with old friends, meet new ones, and enjoy fantastic entertainment.

      Our feature this month is OUT ON A CLEF.  Known for their satire and de-rangement of standard tunes, members Emily Brooks, Pat Cull, Kris Gannon, and Janet Rachel belt out tight, a cappella harmonies in  a variety of styles including swing, barbershop, 50's doo-wop, and jazz.  They'll be fresh back from their show as headliners at the North Tower Circle in Fresno, CA, and will keep you laughing with pieces from that show.  Expect twisted lyrics that poke fun at convention and at themselves.

      AND...the heart and soul of Third Thursday: YOU, either as performer or audience member.  Drop in for some laughs, songs, poems, prose, instruments, spoken word, and any other talents you have.    Each performer has 5 minutes to do their thing.  It is an evening rich with entertainment.

      For PERFORMANCE SIGN-UP email <janetrac@...>, and arrive before 7:30 to check in.  Show is from 7:30 to 10:00 with an intermission.  Spaces are limited so we can end at 10:00, allowing our volunteer crew to get home at a decent hour and keeping the neighbors happy.   A cappella, acoustic, or plugged in are all welcome.  We have a sound system. 

      ARTISTS AND AUTHORS:  If you are a visual artist or author, contact Janet at janetrac@... for information about showing and selling your art or books at Third Thursday. 

      Thank you for keeping this event scent-free.  Event is wheelchair accessible.  Let me know at <janetrac@...> if you need disabled access parking *one day in advance.*
