Having just enjoyed a way-too-shortl Amelia Curran performance at the Jane Bond, I decided to extend the musical evening a little longer by visiting “Monday Night Deliverance”, a new open stage at Little Bean Coffee Bar
. Hosted by Christen Zuch
and Michael Downing, this event has been running since March and already seems to pull in a good audience. Says Christen: “The idea behind the Monday Night deliverance is that anyone can get up and have their 15 minutes, whether it’s spoken word, folk, rap or rock. Anything goes. We invite anyone to come share their heart.” On this
particular night I had a taste of the wide variety performers which ranged from rock & roll to spoken word to a compelling voice/guitar/cello collaboration. The venue is spacious and high-ceilinged, with low comfy chairs and café tables in the front and a bar complete with hockey-game-on-TV a little farther back. The start (8:00-8:45) and end (11:00 – 12:00) times are somewhat flexible depending on who shows up and when.
