ANCIENT VICTORYS OPEN MIKE

at the Antique Sandwich

Here comes another quarterly historic Open Mike bringing back the acoustic music performers from open mikes run by Chris Lunn in California and Washington from the early 1960’s through 1990. Thursday, MAR 12 at 7PM at the Antique Sandwich, 5102 North Pearl, Tacoma, WA. $5 General & $3 Members, Seniors, Kids. This is sponsored by Ancient Victorys.

These historic Open Mike excursions connect musicians and audiences from our past, show the growth of these artists over a 20 to 40 year period, and help document an incredible history of acoustic music. THE LAST ANCIENT VICTORYS Open Mike in December had twenty-two performers. A first timer this Open Mike will be Tim McKamey from the 70’s and 80’s.

Much of the income for Ancient Victorys comes from the door at the Antique Sandwich and our donation jar. Open Mikes only happen quarterly, so it is extremely important to have good attendance to maintain our financial base. Bring friends and let folks know about this unique undertaking. We are saving our dollars to pay off a HD CamRecorder we bought to help in documentation at the Antique as well as begin our history interview program. We have a thirty-five year history to share, which had 3,500 musicians cross the stages in California and Washington.
