O'Malley's Irish Pub's inaugural Open Stage Mondays night saw a stack of solid talent and a light crowd. Hosted by the female duo Sevens Revenge, the all-acoustic open mic night witnessed rappers, folk songsters, cover acts and original artists trying out new stuff. One dude just happen to stop by and heard the music. He came in and found himself on stage with a borrowed guitar, smacking it like it owned him money. Toss in the working-class crowd of PBR regulars and casual date-night couples and the scene was set.
Open Stage Mondays runs 8:30-11:30 p.m. every Monday with no cover charge. As an added bonus O’Malley’s throws in $3 craft beers and $5 hot wings.
