Dear friends and lovers,

Get ready for double the art+community! On Thursday, March 1st, [common ground] is “MERGING MICS” with Tuesday Night Project!

[common ground] is an Orange County open mic series connecting communities through creative expressions. [common ground] is committed to cultivating a safe and positive space for art and healing.

Tuesday Night Project hosts the 1st & 3rd Tuesday Night Cafe. With its 14th season beginning this April, Tuesday Night Cafe is a space for new work from Asian American/Pacific Islander and Greater Los Angeles area communities and is one of the longest running free public art series in downtown L.A.

That’s right, cg and TNP are carpooling together to deliver you yet another night of love and talent and joy, so fasten your seat belts!

Doors open at 6pm.

Open mic sign-ups **START AT 6 AND END AT 6:30**! Because of our limited mic space, we will be giving preference to performers who are new to the space.

$5 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away for anything less!

This will be [common ground]’s last show before we take a brief hiatus, so please don’t miss out!

See you there!!!
