Come one, come all! And bring your instruments, too!
The Beasts of Burden are planning to hold a pre-festival open mic night on August 31st at The Draft, the pub by the Wishing Well that is owned by the musical group.
According to their manager Ignatius Herder, the band wants to give Park residents a chance to “warm up” in advance of the Beats of Burden Music Festival, which they founded last year.
“It’s a party … to celebrate a party,” Herder said.
All Animals are welcome to join in the fun, but the Beasts request that those who wish to play or sing add their names to a list that will be posted outside the pub on Wednesday morning.
“It will be a great time but be prepared to stay out all night,” Herder says.
“And, if we find some unknown Park talents, we will invite them to perform at the festival.”
Open Mic night at The Draft on 31 August: Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
The Beats of Burden Music Festival: 12-14 September
