Songwriters Open Mic

Intimate music venue Cactus Cafe is snugly nestled into the Texas Union (near the UT Tower), so it’s pretty easy to find, but it might not be on your radar. Local musicians may know it for its weekly open mic for songwriters – no covers here, folks! Stop in to hear some original music by up-and-coming artists, who may be selected for one of the venue’s seasonal showcases. Those ready to hit the stage, email Jake Farr: jakefarrmusic@gmail.com. Speaking as someone who used to haul equipment on the bus over to play this mic, it comes highly recommended. – Kat McNevins
