Sundays: Open Mic in Steilacoom

By Steve Dunkelberger on January 8, 2012


Last Sunday, I dropped by the Steilacoom Pub and Deli for its weekly open mic, hosted by singer/songwriter Jeanne Hopkins - or as many know her, Jeanlizabeth. Hopkins told me she's putting the final touches on her next album, which will likely be out this spring.

This open mic feels more like a club than a show. The musicians play to mostly other musicians, so folks try out new songs, ask for feedback and freestyle. Cottonwood Cutups, which just released a CD, and KC Brakes, a regular at C.I. Shenanigans's weekend jazz nights, lit up the joint last week.

Drop in on a Sunday night and watch music be created.
