The Thursday Night Open Mic at the Outta The Way Cafe
The Thursday Night Open Mic at the Outta The Way Cafe is legend.
Washingtonian Magazine calls the Outta The Way one of the
"Best Unexpected Places to See Live Music" in the Metro area.
Started with John Harbison, we’ve blended decades of love for live and local music. Each week a different host will bring a different flair, a different way for both seasoned and budding musicians to enjoy playing at the Outta the Way. On the fifth Thursday, we bring Singers and Songwriters together to celebrate original, acoustic music.
We'll have the drum kit and sound systems set up for you to come in and play, so just a few suggestions: play what you love, don't overwhelm us with the size of your sound, like us on Facebook and bring 100 of your closest friends.
