Two weekly alternating open mic formats make Thursday nights at Artichoke Music the place to be.

Songwriters performing original songs
Every 1st and 3rd Thursday night
Join us every first and third Thursday night for our celebration of songwriting and Portland's vibrant songwriter community. Songwriters, you’re invited to put your name in the hat to play an original song during the evening. We choose names at random to perform. Songwriter Roundup is a unique and wonderful experience for players and non-performing listeners alike!
A Theme Based Open Mic
Every 2nd and 4th Thursday night
Join us every second and fourth Thursday night for an open mic like no other. Each evening follows a theme that encourages musicians to explore a broad range of musical genres. The theme might celebrate an important idea like love, peace, change, or protest. Other Acoustic Village nights are reserved for a specific genre such as blues, roots, instrumental, classical or a true Irish session. Musicians of all levels are encouraged to bring a song (original or cover) to share. This is a night to celebrate music and build community.
