Hey guys, I just posted the review of the Barrington Coffee House “Wide Open Mic”, so here are the accompanying pictures. There was a long set list, and a lot of performers! You can check out pictures of open mics in NJ by clicking on our Flickr page, or you can just look below to view the slideshow of pictures from the Barrington Coffee House “Wide Open Mic” from June 4th, 2009:

It was a great show, with tons of talented performers. Signups started at 7:30 like the website said, and by 7:45 the list was full. Everyone was amazingly talented and everyone had a great time. It’s no wonder the won the best open mic in NJ award by NJMonthly.

The Barrington Coffee House Open Mic Night

The Barrington Coffee House Open Mic Night

On Thursdays in Barrington, NJ, you can visit the Barrington Coffee House for their “Wide Open Mic”. The night begins at 8pm, but signups start at 7:30. The place is packed, so make sure to get there and sign up EARLY. The Barrington Coffee House is on 131 Clements Bridge Rd, Barrington, NJ 08007.

You might be asking yourself, “So why should I go out to Barrington for this event?”. Let me answer by saying that it was voted the best open mic in New Jersey by New Jersey Monthly. But don’t let me explain it, take it from NJ Monthly itself:

“If you want to perform at the Barrington Coffee House open mic, make sure you sign in right at 7:30 on Thursday night. The event, which runs from 8 to 10 pm, is always full. The cafe is small, so you’ll want to grab a seat early. But don’t let the size fool you; the Barrington Coffee House attracts quality local performers—and national acts on Friday and Saturday nights.”

Every post is complete, and just about everyone involved is resting now. In case you missed it, or if you just wanted an easy listing of what each post did, here it goes:

The first post– explains the goals of Tunes Against Turmoil 2 and the pictures were of people there and events going on

The second post– explains more of what people did, along with the Committee of Conscience table, Dr. Jerry Ehrlich, and Leon Sangster’s poem, “What Courage with Ink and Blood Spilt”

The (intermediate) post– a link to a YouTube video of all of the pictures from the event (made by Unfortunately, Google cut out the song I had in the background. How does everyone else get away with it?

The third post– was the first one to cover bands from the event. Total Failure, Class 6, and Ocean the Legend

The fourth post– was the last coverage posting and covered Marc Ribler, My Name is August, and Alex Siniari & Christian Glomb

That’s all folks.
