Every Tuesday night at 8pm, The Depot hosts an open mic where anyone can perform for ten minutes. The variety of talent and genre run the spectrum. From stand-up comedy to punk bands, folks come to this dive bar in Baltimore City to get their turn on the microphone. There’s gear for a band with house drums and house guitar along with stage lights and professional sound. Folks can speak, sing, play, or even perform to a track with original or cover songs. The ten-minute limit and quick turnaround between acts keeps the night moving. Each week the audience votes on a winner. Once a quarter the 12 previous weeks’ winners compete for the top three who win prizes from local sponsors. First place gets professional studio recording time at The Watermelon Room and a music video produced by Michael Ivan Schwartz.
