The Listening: If I Ruled The World

It’s the return of Lynchburg’s Most Dynamic Open Mic Scene!

Nas and Ms. Lauryn Hill penned this immortal track from the early 1990s, inspiring an entire generation of hip-hop fans to “imagine that”. Here at The Listening, we invite you to do the same behind the mic!

If the world was yours, what would you do?

Maybe you’d take a crack at bullying. Or eradicating all student loan debt. Or maybe you have an amazing idea on the next best thing since sliced bread? The stage is open for all poets, singers, dancers and thespians - you know how we do!

The sign-ups for the open mic start at 7:45p, when doors open, and your $5 donation helps support The Listening’s programming and activities! Don’t forget about Backline Coffee, providing a full espresso menu, fresh lemonades (we really like the lavender lemonade), and iced teas with fruit-infused options and kombucha on tap! #supportlocal

Signature Artists will be announced soon!
