Hive Open Mic
Week 53, April 11-17, 2021
Our community's open mic event attracts 50+ musicians and hundreds of listeners each week. We provide a haven for creative expression and genuine connection. All are welcome. Every contributor can be proud of the fact we are building a live music movement by celebrating songs with an international audience. Our event stands for global harmony.
In case you haven't already noticed, our community is growing in numbers, in quality, in depth of connection... Because of this progress, we've designated three official curators: @cabelindsay, @mipiano, and @juliopalomo. This means more chances for musicians to be witnessed and appreciated for their musical gifts. I am delighted by our team, and thankful to everyone supporting the Hive Open Mic movement.
For the 53rd week of Hive Open Mic, we will explore the following theme: "Toys." This theme is selected by Spotlight Artist: @davidcentenor, who is a phenomenal guitarist and an gifted vocalist, often championing the intricate songs of Silvio Rodríguez. Our community is fortunate to hear his music here. Everyone is encouraged to share the collective current as we express and connect through: "Toys".
This week's Hive Open Mic theme is: “Toys.” This is a pressure-free invitation, encouraging us to explore new territory together as artists and share a common ground as a community. Musicians always have full freedom to bring whatever music feels inspired in the moment.
