We invite all singer/songwriters to join us for this Thursday's open mic night, a.k.a. Living Room Live. Named Creative Loafing's Best of the Bay 2014 for "Best Open Mic Night", the Hideaway Cafe has opened up its doors and its stage for the past 7 years to countless rising talents as well as seasoned veterans who have made a career of music.

Consumate host John Kelly, a singer/songwriter himself, started this weekly tradition 7 years ago after building a stage as an extension of the recording studio. And the rest is history. The talent has been immense, the highlight reel endless... and the memories priceless. You won't find a more appreciative audience than you will here at St Petersburg's Original Listening Room!

Come down and check in with Phil & Rachel and get on the list. The board opens starting at 6pm for singer/songwriters to sign up to take the stage to share 2-3 original songs and then "pass the mic" so to speak. Artists - if you'd like to get the recording studio "in the red" for your set, be sure to indicate that when you sign up (solos only). For as low as $35, you can walk away with WAV files of your performance and a special Hideaway Cafe keepsake flash drive.

Invite your favorite music loving friends out for some incredible original music from some of St Pete's finest! As always Thursdays are free.
