Mountainside: Open Mic & Art Night

After a long absence, Mountainside Open Mic & Art Night is back for six weeks this spring! Join us Wednesday nights (and one Saturday afternoon during Alaska Folk Festival!) for music and crayons and creativity. All ages welcome.
The event is free, though we finish every week with a featured artist that we support with enthusiastic community donations, so come prepared. Featured artists this season:
- 3/15 - Lisa Puananimohala'ikalani Denny
- 3/22 - Erin Heist
- 3/29 - Sunny Porch
- 4/05 - Dara Rilatos
- 4/19 - Nicole Church
During Alaska Folk Festival week, we'll congregate on Satuday 4/15 at 3pm instead of Wednesday night for the AFF Songwriter Showcase -- three hours of open mic, all original songs.
We can't wait to see you back again for Mountainside!
