"Are you an artist in need of a sanctuary to have new or experimental works heard? Are you yearning for a space to pray your prose so that the creative gods may show you your next step? Are you seeking shelter from spaces and organizations which promote product over process? Then, rejoice – Scratch Chapel is here!" It's an open mic situation every first Monday of the month, basically, where the Sahara Lounge "converts into a sanctuary (with a bar) for creatives," as hosted by Purdy Mischief. Performative freedom, passionate intensity, lights tripped fantastically, and if it's good enough for the likes of Todd Mein to stake a claim (and it is), then we say HELL YES! Show up to sign up.
