We have put together our most ideal imaginings of what the ultimate open mic would be. Finally, on November 11th at 7PM, Columbus Songwriters Association will host its first ever Songwriters Showcase.
The Songwriter Showcase will look a little different to everyone:
For songwriters, you’ll step through the Scarlet and Grey doors and arrive at a music atmosphere that will immediately engage you, invite you to smile, connect, and form relationships with the room full of songwriters around you. Throughout the night, you’ll receive the truthful feedback from the audience that you’ve always wanted. Drink specials will get you thinking and feeling creative, as you’ll be encouraged to co-write with other songwriters off-stage. At the end of the night, you’ll take away valuable insights into your songs, newfound friendships with other like-minded songwriters, and a revitalized passion that will last you until next month’s showcase.
For the audience, your friends, family, and fans will walk into Scarlet and Grey and feel immediately immersed in thick music culture. The diversity of people in the room, the guitars along the walls, the arts all around them– will be enough to leave a lasting impression. As the night goes on, they’ll find themselves curiously swept up by the passions of the songwriters around them. Even though they may have never written a song, they’ll feel delighted that their insights are welcomed and encouraged. The audience will close the night in applause, eager to tell all their friends about the rich artistic experience they discovered in Columbus.
For me, I’ll be sitting back and watching all of this come to life. CSA is a dream coming true, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all on November 11 at Scarlet and Gray Cafe, 7PM!
