Performers recite, poets flourish at library mic

BY ALEXANDRA HAYNES

Papio South’s official Open Mic Night was a success. After the first attempt at running it failed due to initial lack of interest, last Friday’s well advertised event had a humble but active crowd of participants with many performers bringing friends, filling the audience. The cosy library setting gave the event a comfortable café feel with lights dimmed, a podium and posable mic provided for versatility. There were guitarists, smooth singers, and slam poets – the evening was a small show of Titan talent.

Alumni, family, and local friends were able to be brought along. Christmas sugar cookies were available, topping the night off sweetly.

Relaxed and friendly, the Open Mic crowd agreed that they wanted it to be run again, ideally as a bi-weekly occurrence. News on this will be advertised when decisions have been made by staff.
