7:30 PM

Sometimes you just need someone to lift you up and give support, and nobody knows that more than those who attend FretKnot Fridays.

And in that spirit of friendship and creative collaboration we convene again for the August Hootenanny. The usual array of fine musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, and whatever else comes through the door will be on hand, plus the fine folks who come to witness the spectacle.

And don’t forget Independence Tap’s excellent array of reasonably priced ales and spirits.

Come and watch the fun, or better yet— go on up and do your thang!!!

Never be afraid to try something new!

Independence Tap is a great space and this night is perfect for working out new material and expanding horizons as an Artist/Performer.

When we host Open Stages we create an atmosphere of respect for all genres of performance where Artists can feel safe and secure. [No stylistic cliquishness OR DISRESPECT allowed!]

Our greatest joy comes from seeing someone perform for the first time or watching an Artist try out a new genre: a Musician doing Storytelling, a Storyteller doing Stand-Up, a Poet playing Music, a Stand-Up reading a poem…

The Place Where The Boundaries Meet & Overlap Is Where True Magic Happens.

And there is nothing like the feeling of opening a door into a new room in the mansion of your soul— SO COME ON DOWN & GO ON UP!!!

And the rest is history…
