Friday Night Coffeehouse
Featured Local Songwriters

Join us on Friday evenings for a treasure trove of live, acoustic music. You’ll enjoy eclectic music performed by four or so talented artists performing 30 minute sets. Magic happens on Friday nights at Cafe Artichoke!

7:30pm (Doors open at 7:00pm)
Admission: $5.00

Beer, wine, coffee, tea and light snacks are available at every show!

The Friday Coffeehouses run 7:30pm-10:30pm, including an intermission, and feature four artists playing individual, solid 30-minute sets. The unpaid showcase provides opportunities to perform for and connect with the Portland community. A CD sales table and performer tip jar are provided.

Since Artichoke Music is a listening venue and we are very dedicated to creating a community ethic of respectfulness, performers must be prepared to stay for the entire night. Please arrive by 6:45pm to load in. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7:30pm. We think it’s important to be respectful of the other performing artists by being part of the audience. If you need to leave early or arrive late, perhaps we can schedule your performance for another time when you will be able to participate for the entire evening.
