Java Express open mic is back

CLEARLAKE – The open mic at the Java Express will be returning to Clearlake on March 14.

 

As reported last year, ASCAP (the same nice folks who threatened to sue the Girl Scouts over songs in their Campfire Book) shut down the popular venue unless they paid $388 per year for a license. There is no charge to attend and no alcohol sold at this event. 

 

After reading about the demise of this community gathering spot, two DJ’s from KFOG radio in the Bay Area contacted Java Express’ owner and offered to pay the license fee for two years. A regular customer reestablished contact with ASCAP and did the paperwork.

 

All that is left to do is pass the word that this second Friday of the month tradition continues.


The show starts at 7 p.m. on 14624 Lakeshore Drive.

 

Open mic welcomes lightly amplified musicians, poets, standup comedians, card tricks ... Animal acts or kickboxing demos are discouraged. Karaoke singers will be beaten with guitar cases.

 

Sign up early or call 995-1065 to be on the program.
