During the pandemic we have shifted to Monday night online open mics from 8pm - 11pm Mountain Standard Time called The Stay at Home Open Mic. These sessions are held through a Zoom meeting and streamed live to our Youtube channel. To participate is easy: 1) Sign up 2) As the event is starting, log into Zoom and join the meeting 3) Enjoy the show and wait to be called up to perform.
To sign up, look for the weekly signup sheet posted on our linktree (just be aware of the date to make sure that you are signing up for the right date). You can also be kept up to date with shows and performance opportunities by following us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. You can also subscribe to our Youtube channel to view past shows, performer highlights, and to be notified when we go LIVE.
There is still a lot of catching up to do in uploading podcast episodes. Until then, catch us by searching The BWOMS Podcast on apple podcasts, Spotify, Google, stitcher, or wherever you prefer listening to your favorite podcasts.
