It was a mighty crowd at Professor Java’s this past Monday night for the May edition of the Wide Open Mic. Kevin Peterson began the evening by reminding us that it was, in fact, the 83rd installment of this great open mic institution.
As for the open mic, we had a good mix of equal parts poetry and music. Half of the Normanskill Saxons kicked off the night and played a few pieces before Carol Jewell returned with a poem talking about Fenway Park in great detail. Erin Powers played a new song that she has been working on. The rest of the open mic consisted of poetry from a new poet (who’s name I did not catch), Kevin Peterson, Avery, and Thom Francis.
The challenge of the night was to come up with a piece from the prompt: “Pastor of Muppets”.
Another great night at the Sanctuary. We’ll be back next month on Monday, June 11 for the “84” edition of the Wide Open Mic. Sign up starts at 7:15, open mic starts at 8:00.
