This is your chance to play at the Freight. Our Open Mic has brought in some of our brightest performers, including Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza. So come on down and participate. All performers are welcome.

One great thing about our Open Mic is that, unlike similar events held in noisy bars where most folks are oblivious to the music, you’ll be playing in front of a friendly and supportive audience of people who actually listen.

The CoverlettesOf all the great girl groups from the 1960s – the Shirelles and the Crystals, the Ronettes and the Shangri-Las – the greatest that never existed was the Coverlettes. You may not have heard of them – Ella, Bella, and Stella Duvet, three bad-girl sisters from the wrong side of Vermont.
