    I’m interested in performing in one of the open mic-nights. As a Brooklyn based hip-hop artist that goes to NYU, I have a crowd in the area the will come out and support wherever I perform. My music is found here:
    I’ve released 2 previous mix tapes, and am working on the next one right now.
    For more information, my manager’s # is (714) 337-3957
    Looking forward to performing!

      Thanks for hitting us up Radamiz, you should definitely come out to rock at the open-mic on a Sunday. Doors are at 8pm, with the show starting around 9pm. The earlier you get there, the better spot on the list you can get. Admission is $10, but if you have a large group coming you can give a shout for group discount:

      • G_973 September 23, 2012, 11:42 am

        I also have a group with me and my brother (Garden State) who rap (pretty damn good) and I’m trying to come there tonight to perform a couple songs and see what the feel is out there for lyricists. My music and videos are in my bio on twitter. Is there a way I can contact somebody working here over the phone to ask a few questions? My number is 973-525-2985

        • admin September 23, 2012, 1:28 pm

    Greetings EODUB, do people only perform original music or do you have kats come in there rhyming over industry beats for example?

    • admin February 23, 2016, 5:15 pm

      People do bring industry beats, but our DJ can play records for people. Its better if you either bring original music, or rock over our DJ, but we won’t turn you away

  • Dulo March 28, 2016, 10:24 am Reply

    Hey just wanted to know do the performances have to be accapella or can we bring an instrumental and if so in what form should the Instrumental be given

    • admin April 15, 2016, 6:48 pm

      No, we definitely prefer if you rock over a beat. You can either rock over an instrumental provided by our DJ, or if you have your own music produced, you can bring your own music on any digital playback device (phone, etc) that has a headphone output. Please don’t bring an industry beat though, our DJ can provide you with something.

    Is the last Sunday of the month for the open mic as well or is there something else going on those nights?

    • admin April 15, 2016, 6:43 pm

      We have special events like the MC Challenge and headlining perfomers on the last Sunday of every month but still have the open-mic, but only have 10 spots on those events, so you have to make sure to get there early. (definitely before 8pm).

  • Milah Jae April 14, 2016, 2:31 pm Reply

    Is this just for rappers or can vocalists come through too? New to CT, from Detroit and lookin’ to rock here in NY. If not here, got recommendations for me? 🙂

    • admin April 15, 2016, 6:42 pm

      It is definitely mostly MCs but you are welcome to stop by, some vocalists/singers occasionally rock and definitely get support

  • Simon ng April 14, 2016, 8:35 pm Reply

    Do you currently still have open mic djing? Can I bring my own laptop/cdj or I have to use the house one? Is there a way to guarantee a slot? I don’t want to go all the way to your awesome establishment and there are no slots left.

    • admin April 15, 2016, 6:41 pm

      If you get to the venue early enough (8pm) you can talk with the staff and soundman about maybe using some of your own gear. There is a DI box on stage as well as a mini-stereo cable. Also if you are that early you should not have a problem getting a spot on the list.

    Can a lyricist with little stage experience sign up for the open mics? I only ask because the majority of the posts seems to come from people who already have mix tapes, videos, etc.
    Basically, is this a place where I can put myself out there to see how my work is received and grow from there, or will “the executioner” come out to shoo me off stage?

    • admin July 15, 2016, 12:52 pm

      Nah you are welcome to come work on your craft, that is why we are there

    Hey so I figure this open-mic is primarily for rappers- Do you / or have you considered allowing other kinds of acts? I just moved from Fl where I performed at my weekly open mic as an live producing jamtronic/hiphop act performing solo and backing freestyle rappers, using only analog gear. There’s some videos of me performing on my insta -> -Let me Know

    So I havent been to EODUB in a while and I am trying to remember exactly how it works. I know its all freestyle for the open-mic but is it a sign-up sheet or just wait in line, perform for a bit and then get back in line again and wait your turn for another chance to rock the mic? Are there nights when its strictly a battle format or is every sunday just freestyle open mic sessions?
