Open Mic night at Rhodeside Grill

Just because Clarendon has lost Iota doesn't mean saying goodbye to our open mic nights on Wednesdays. Alex Parez is continuing the traditional at Rhodeside Grill basement starting October 18th at 7:30pm.

Alex said he is "happy and excited to announce that I'll be hosting a brand new open mic night Wednesday night's at Rhodeside Grill, not too far from our old "home" at IOTA Club & Cafe, starting October 18th. We'll be in their lower level downstairs and I'm sticking with the same format, 2 signups at 7:30pm and 10:00pm and a featured artist/act at 10:00pm to play a 30 minute set. Our new "home" holds a very special memory for me and is therefore very near and dear to my heart as many years ago I was asked to play a cover song in my friends' band for their album release show. That friends' band was Amateur Hour, their album is AWESOME as our all of the band members and the song I chose to sing with them was none other than "Running Down a Dream" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It was a wonderful time, several other friends came up to play songs and I tell you it was just a magical bit of music, friends, family, community and fellowship. "
