AUGUSTA — An Open Mic Night will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, at Lithgow Public Library, 45 Winthrop St.

Sign-ups for mic slots will start at 5:45 p.m., spoken word performances will be allowed for five minutes; musical performances will be allowed two songs or eight minutes, whichever comes first. Time slots will be given in the order in which they appear on the sign-up sheet, with the final performance starting at 7:40 p.m..

This free event may have strong language and mature content, because of the unpredictable nature of community performances. While all ages are welcome to watch and/or participate, parental discretion is advised.

If the library is closed because of inclement weather, the snow date for this event will be Feb. 11.

Stay tuned for details for the upcoming April Open Mic Poetry Night. If you or your organization would like to be a featured poet at the poetry night, contact Julie Olsen.
