6:30 pm: The Music Playground Open Mic Series - TMP Open Mics are a bi-montly event every 2nd Wednesday of the month at Sidewalk Cafe!

Open MIC is a community of musicians, poets, comedians, dancers and other performers coming together to share and encourage each other at open mics throughout New York City. This event originally started for the advertising, media, and film industry encouraging the musical development of creatives, producers, and more while providing them with a space to perform and share with the community.

We are excited to announce we have expanded to open up the TMP series to all performers at our bi-monthly residency at the Sidewalk Cafe. Any instruments, dance, poetry, short stories or dance welcome. Slots are 7 minutes each. If you aren't a performer, we hope you will join us in supporting our peers and making some new friends!
