Students have various ways of complaining about finals season. Some do so with memes, and others by discounting liberal arts classes as far easier than STEM classes during otherwise cordial conversations. Want to complain in song to a live audience? Then come out to The Meantime Open Mic Night.
The Meantime, a student-run coffee shop, will host a free open mic in the Campus Y on Dec. 6 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Meantime will stay open during the mic night to sell snacks and drinks. In addition, student artists will be showcasing and selling art at the event.
Olivia Neal, The Meantime’s chief marketing officer, said spur of the moment performances are encouraged after all of the scheduled performers have finished.
Sign-ups for the mic and to display or sell art during it are on the event’s Facebook page.
“I think we have the room reserved from 7 to 9, I don’t think anyone’s reserving it after us, so until somebody kicks us out we’ll probably be there,” Neal said.
Neal said that many of The Meantime’s baristas are artists or performers themselves, so hosting a combined open mic and art night felt natural for The Meantime.
