Here is a run-down of the show:

Weekly Tuesday night Open Microphone hosted by Up And Up Fashions. The night is 3-segment show which includes the Up And Up lyrical showcase, weekly feature, and open mic artist.

-The lyrical showcase is the only scheduled acapella section of the show ; it features three artist that will present then written works to the audience for two rounds consecutively. However this is not a battle or competition, its a written sharing session

-The Open Microphone list is circulated prior to start of show, however its traditionally called out of order due to balance of show (There is a possibility that a performer may sign the list and be unable to perform). There will be NO tracks played from CDs, all performers MUST perform to the house band (Mambo Sauce) and they each have 2.5 minutes to perform their set.

-Weekly Features are selected by the UAU Open Microphone Committee.

....Hope to see you soon...Peace!
