open mic night

tuesday was the first of open mic nights at the edison's tavern in tremont. every tuesday night at 8pm shawn mishack will host the activities and davis mavis will dj, everyone is invited to perform. last night was most of the old "green room" crowd: shawn_mishack (kid tested), mikey machine (machine go boom, giant eagle, mcshitz), davis mavis (neo nothing, kill shawns head, mcshitz, state of ohio), eugene, nick (small object a) but it also had shawn_f (theodore vril, state of ohio, ikobod project), mark (morticia's chair) also perform the guitar and sing thing.
mikey did the MGB song "joe" which was a pleasant suprise considering that his band hasn't performed that for at least a couple years (maybe i can get him to play that on pat's halloween bash).
all is welcomed to join the fun every tuesday and if you have a song or want to do a comedy routine or poetry all the better.

post note: the upcoming sept. 13 open mic night will have a comedian

Who was the drunk running his mouth and disrupting the open mike last night?

And why didn't the bartender cut him off or otherwise tell him to stop harassing the bar?

Just curious if that is going to be happening every week?

The open mike is great, shame to have one bad attitude loud mouth try to ruin the night for everyone.

This was my first Edison's open mike night and was impressed with some of the talent.
The heckler that you mentioned is Tom Lanahan (sp?) owner of the Treehouse bar right down the street. It was really lame for him to yell bigoted slurs and harass the patrons especially after being invited to take the mike.
He reflects his bar real well, anyone that drinks at the Treehouse needs to check themselves.
He was asked to leave which is cool but that order was slow in coming.
I am going to give Edison's another shot and really enjoy the open mike concept but if that behavior is excepted the next time it will be a long time until they ever see me back.

Lou, if you're going to be at the open mic tomorrow, I want to talk to you about this dude. I think he is threatening to sue me unless I take down what Liz posted.

Leave the comment up. If the drunkard doesn't want negative postings then he should clean up his act. Maybe he should stay out of the bars since he can't seem to handle his alcohol. Perhaps his time would be better spent taking a diversity class.

Noticed the comments about Edison's open Mike night and the Tom Lanahn event is gone from Tremonter. I hope it has not been removed, for it would be a horrible victory for the injustice that already frees him from consequence at the expense of others. Hopefully... not at the expense of our free speech.

Blogs belong to the people and people die in the name of our first amendment rights... (including the media of the computer age)

Alas... is it too much to hope he will think of this fact the next time he cracks open an alcoholic beverage and perhaps he may pause to abstain... just once... in the honor of those who give the ultimate sacrifice so he may be free to over-indulge in non-sense? Pray tell...
