Off The Dome *Weekly* Freestyle Hip-Hop Open Mic hosted by Jon Ditty
From the guy who brought you Dunedin Lyricist Society... Best of the Bay-winning Rapper, Jon Ditty, hosts OFF THE DOME (Freestyle Hip-Hop Open Mic), an evening of rap shenanigans, with a focus on improvised vocal performance—taking place every Wednesday (starting May 12th) at Blur Nightclub in Downtown Dunedin, FL.
Whether you are a self-proclaimed MC, or simply want to test your skills on the mic, OTD provides a working platform to do so without scrutiny. Try your hand at numerous rap games and exercises that seek to improve mental sharpness and cunning on-the-spot. Perform over nostalgic, mainstream, underground, and/or unconventional hip-hop instrumentals (chosen at random). The results are highly entertaining, both for participants AND the audience.
Each week will also encompass a small WRITTEN Open Mic component. Three (3) slots are available, and will be honored on a first-come-first-serve basis. Interested parties should arrive as early as 8:30pm to sign-up. Each slot allows for the performance of up to two (2) songs (totaling no more than 10 minutes). Artists should be prepared with their performance tracks on a flash drive (other playback devices will not be accepted). Emcees are encouraged NOT to perform over their own vocal recordings because 1) it sounds like sht and 2) is wack AF.
COVID-19 SAFETY: Disposable microphone covers for protection against germ transmission via shared equipment will be provided upon request.
9pm - Midnight | Free Entry | Ages 21+
FREESTYLE RULES: 1) No Writtens 2) No Judgement 3) No Exceptions *Come with the intention to participate, not to shine.
