Open mic night at Cafe La Mo sees great turnout

KCSS kicked off the first official open mic night at Cafe La Mo on Main St. in Turlock on Feb. 18.
After a rough start for Cafe La Mo in creating an open mic night, the business was happy to have KCSS reach out to them to rebuild the event. The first attempt to have this open mic night was quickly shut down due to licensing issues. Luckily, KCSS joined forces with Cafe La Mo to solve these problems.
Open mic night attendees were pleasantly surprised with the turnout and happy to come out and support local musicians and a local business.
Audience member Austin High expressed his appreciation and excitement towards KCSS activism in the music scene.
“I feel like the music scene was really dying out around here, there aren’t many venues and now that KCSS is working on this open mic night and putting out the compilation album it’s really nice,” High said. “Especially for me since I’m getting back into music now it’s more motivating for me knowing that there is somewhere to go and share my music and hear other people’s music.”
Of the many, “thank yous” and other positive words from audience members, Brityn Butrick, one of the owners of Cafe La Mo, shared her appreciation and encouragement for what KCSS is doing.
“We are so excited because it got stopped so quickly when we tried to do it ourselves,” Butrick said. “It was really neat when KCSS emailed us and that dream came back alive. And the turnout tonight completely blew our last one out of the water. So we’re really excited for the next one.”
Cafe La Mo and KCSS have high hopes for this event and hope to bring life to the music scene and, again, support local musicians to make their dreams a reality.
Open mic night will be the third Wednesday of every month with sign ups starting at 6 p.m. with a show time of 6:30 p.m.
