First open mic night a success

Jen­nifer Brigan


More than 120 peo­ple gath­ered Fri­day evening at the YU for the first Open Mic Night of the school year. A big­ger crowd of over twenty stu­dents signed up to per­form, which is more than any other night in the four years since Open Mic Night began.

Stu­dents show­cased a vari­ety of tal­ent includ­ing poetry, singing, danc­ing, imper­son­ations, gui­tar play­ing, and piano solos. The audi­ence added to the ener­getic atmos­phere by danc­ing, clap­ping, and cheer­ing on the per­form­ers. The envi­ron­ment was very laid back and supportive.

Open Mic Night reg­u­lar, Ayoub Dib said, “Every­one for­gets about their home­work for the most part and just comes and has a good time… It’s a good thing. Most peo­ple look for­ward to it.”

Open Mic Night is held every month at the Yel­low­jacket Union Ship­par Atrium and it is free of charge. The next one will be on Fri­day Octo­ber 19th at 8:00 PM. If you are inter­ested in per­form­ing, signup begins at 7:00 PM.
