The stiffest “competition” (ulp!) we’ve encountered so far in an open mic, and despite the wait (didn’t hit the stage until 11:30pm), it was worth it to finally get up there and do it. We baptized Norm’s new amp, and there were talented hapa sisters, country rock comedians, one helluva beat boxer, a few, rock/folk stars with great hair, great voices, and most excellent songs. The ante was up. We got up there and gave ’em what fer. Dawson Street Pub virgins no more, we’ll be back for more.
