That was my evening yesterday. I went up to Modern Times Cafe at the Politics & Prose bookstore on CT Ave. where they have an unplugged open mic on Friday.
It’s hosted by Maureen Nelson who has created such a welcoming atmosphere that all the people there to perform almost filled every seat. In addition to the open-micers, Maureen had a spotlight performer on the bill – Rene’ Moffatt who has just released his 6-song EP, “Here And Now Is Home.” He’s a great guy and his music is good, too!! He has lots of upcoming gigs. If you’re in the DC area, you should go check him out. His calendar is HERE.
I was one of the last to perform because I squeeked in just before things got under way. But there were still plenty of people hanging out listening. With so many performers, we only got one song each. So I tried out one of my newest tunes – Restless Fire. And I think it went over pretty darned well!
