Girls-only open mic GRRRLS Night returns to Ale Mary’s in Scranton on March 25
After taking a few months off, GRRRLS Night, the only girls-only performance night in Northeastern Pennsylvania, returns to Ale Mary’s in downtown Scranton on Friday, March 25 at 8 p.m.
Created by Jess Meoni, graphic designer and founder of the Scranton Zine Fest and Ruthless Zine, the monthly open mic platform began in July 2015 as a way “for all women to showcase their talents in poetry, spoken word, music, and comedy.”
“The purpose of creating an all-female open mic is to provide a safe space for women to showcase their talents without criticism. I believe this can be a springboard for women to comfortably perform at this open mic, branch out, and take their talents elsewhere, such as other open mics as well.”
The event is all-ages, though there may be mature content, and there is no cover; organizers just ask that attendees support Ale Mary’s (126 Franklin Ave., Scranton) by purchasing food and drinks.
Sign-ups are online via Facebook, and the eight slots for this month’s GRRRLS Night have been filled already; the performers scheduled are Monica Noelle, Angelia Petrillo, Rachel Woodworth, Ali Pica, Amanda Rogan, Chelsi Louise, Jenica Lodde, and Isabel Anderson.
