San Jose’s Own 25 Hour Open Mic Starts: Friday, June 25 at 8pm Ends: Saturday, June 26 at 8-9pm
The Summer Slumberfest provides a space for performance artists and musicians of all genres to showcase their work. Artists may sign-up and perform in person or via projected video chat. Likewise, audience members may view the show in person or on-line.
World Slam Poetry champion Mike McGee and local insomniac David Perez host the event, encouraging both local and world-wide artists to share their talent. Audience members may come and go as they please. Those who stay for the duration of the show can either catch some shut-eye with bedding provided or partake of coffee and concessions to stay awake for all 25 hours.
Passed performers include National Slam Poetry champion Anis Mojgani, Write Bloody authors Rob Sturma and Michael Roberts, local favorite band Corpus Collossum, and San Jose’s Youth Grand Slam Poetry champion Lucia Misch.
