Because our pets are our family, our pets are our friends, in collaboration with the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals we're bringing you our first open mic event dedicated to our pets! A communal opportunity to celebrate the mortal creatures who make our lives worth living, to grieve, bereave & honor those animals we love & lost... to explore the intersection where death & dying meets the animal kingdom, while all the while making room for simply being ALIVE.

DOGS ON LEASH ARE ALLOWED TO ATTEND!

Sign-ups will be the night of & the list fills up quickly, so if you want to perform, you’d better get there early…

If you’re going to perform, keep it under 5 MINUTES. That’s right: 5 MINUTES. WE WILL TIME YOU. And we will hug you when we have to stop you [just to make it easier on you (or harder – depending on your propensity for intimacy)].

Poetry, prose, music, dancing, comedy, drama, happy, sad, & on & on & on… Remember: EVERYTHING GOES… so do whatever you want.

You don’t have to perform anything; the audience is as essential as the performers.

Please don’t perform anything with a setup that takes much more time than the time it takes for you to walk onstage. Honestly, plugging things in is endlessly boring. If you need to borrow an instrument, figure it out before you’re called to the stage.

IMPORTANT ::: DON’T TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY. Come and have fun. The end. Remember. Someday, we won’t exist and neither will the English language. If you choose to take yourself seriously, then take yourself so seriously that it’s stupid. Ridiculousness is encouraged.

You’re Going to Die. No. Really. You are.
