Open Mic Featuring Gwendolyn Grace
What: A concert

Where: Paine (2W)
MC: Jeff Keller
Limited to: 12-15 performers
A showcase of prepared songs, with a mini-set or two from our featured artist. Other interested performers should sign up in advance at the Program Nexus; one song per performer. We'll probably have time for about a dozen performers, not counting Gwen.
Doom, Gloom, and Despondency
What: A song competition
When: Sunday, 4:00 PM to 5:15 PM
Where: Burroughs (3E)
MC: Jeremy Kessler
Limited to: 12 contestants
A serious, formal, thematic, judged song contest. Attendees are expected to maintain a solemn aspect (e.g., dark clothes, long face, and soft, respectful speech). In the event of a breach of decorum (e.g., laughter), the offender will be evicted for the duration of the current song—and the singer will receive bonus points! All attendees welcome; contestants should sign up in advance.
