PVD Hoot Open Mic Night at Grant’s Block

pvd hoot posterWant to show the world how talented you are? On select Sunday afternoons this summer, you’ll have a chance to perform on an outdoor stage in Grant’s Block. PVD Hoot is hosting its Summer Series in partnership with In Downcity from 2-5 PM on June 8th & 29th, July 13th & 27th, August 10th & 24th, and September 7th & 28th.

Sign up for a 10 minute spot—and entertain the crowd with 2 songs, a few jokes, or your own surprises. You don’t have to be a professional musician, although they’re certainly welcome! If you’re not quite ready to grace the stage, simply bring chairs or a blanket, relax, and listen! It’s FREE.

The summer series is sponsored in part by the DID, Yelp, and Zipcar. Bolt Coffee Company, Small Point Cafe and Tricycle Ice Cream will also have treats available!
