Hey, teens, this OPEN MIC is for YOU!

We're super excited to announce Uptown Crew's first TEEN OPEN MIC!

YOU: Age 13-19
  • Do you write poetry? (Maybe it's a secret...)
  • Have you already brought your words up front at a spoken word slam or with your friends?
  • Or maybe you are a singer, or a songwriter, or both.
  • Comedian, actor, performer - whatever....you'll get 5 minutes in the spotlight, and you'll get to watch some inspiring stuff.
It's happening on Saturday, JULY 17, at Raphs Plaza, the cool African Market and Internet Cafe that opened a couple of months ago at 709 Bergen Avenue in McGinley Square. Owned by a local (by way of several African countries) family, we're grateful to have Raphs in the neighborhood and so glad they've agreed to host Uptown Crew's first ever Teen Open Mic.

Doors open at 6:30pm so you can sign up to perform. Performances will start around 7pm and go till around 9pm.

Admission is FREE.
And Raphs serves great refreshments.

Oh, and parents and adults - you're welcome too.
Please pass the word on to your own teen friends and families.

See you there!
