Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Open Mic Night at Deep South

If you come to the Deep South Bar on a Tuesday night, you can definitely anticipate great music. Every Tuesday night they host Open Mic night, where bands and solo artists of every style are welcome.

In the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh, there is a place with a lot of character and a lot of talent. I’ve been coming down for a few months now on Tuesday nights since my friend who plays at the open mic invited me to see him play. You’ll be sure to expect more than 6 acts that regularly play every night as well as new musicians that drop by from time to time.

In this very friendly atmosphere, I really got to know a great range of very talented musicians, from a guy that plays the ukulele to a very soulful girl with her guitar.

Open mic goes on from 9pm to 2am every Tuesday, and welcomes anybody to come play music or to sit and listen. It has become one of my Tuesday night activities to enjoy the company of friends, music and beer.
