Red Rock Coffee, 201 Castro Street, Mountain View, second floor. The open mic starts at 7PM. I will go on at 8PM and do a 20 minute set: the complete version of The Intellecta Rhapsody (Super Holly argues with, then joins with the Intellecta Car to fight the super-tank-stealing Rocky the Gangster), and the end of The Malevolent Mystery Meat (Tucker and Wrigley, the boys with super puppy powers, must save Super Holly from evil school cafeteria ladies). Both of those short stories won audio story awards at San Mateo County Fair Literary Contest. And both are car chases. I am hoping people from work and others will be there. I have been practicing to get this down to 19 minutes or less. I am not being paid for this one (most open mics do not pay). But I will have fun. I shall FEED on audience energy! Cue evil laugh: MOO HAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!
P.S. I had thought about performing the chapter in The Comic Book Code titled “Intellecta Overdrive” where the background music is Mona Lisa Overdrive from the Matrix Reloaded. But that is cover music, as in no way will I ever own any rights to it. At a tiny open mic, no one really cares about that (as long as they do not put it on YouTube where it will likely be taken down. But now, I have to think about being recorded, and using those vids to build up more online video/audio stories. There is lots of good royalty free music out there. I will use a new piece called Toy Piano. It sounds great for kids and kids at heart. I got it at the YouTube Audio Library. Great site for great musical backgrounds.
