Open Mic Night occurs on campus in The Crossroads every Tuesday from 8 to 9:30 p.m.
Participants range from first-timers to regulars who want to express their musical talents. These participants include not only individual students but also popular performers such as David and Company and C-Strong.
Along with the many individual and new performances, Chris Armstrong, a sophomore studying communication, is a regular to the Open Nights. Armstrong works as the director for the Mic Nights and is a performer himself. His fans know him as “C-Strong.”
“My roots are rapping. C-Strong is a rapper,” Armstrong said. Armstrong also has several albums on iTunes and on Spotify under the name “C-Strong.”
Jedrick Fossati, a junior studying financial economics, and Abe Schuman, a junior studying business, are friends who recently teamed up to perform.
“I love Open Mic Night because in Rexburg, there’s not many places to go and perform,” Fossati said. “Also, it’s a very chill environment and it’s free so there’s really no pressure, and overall it’s really nice.”
Fossati and Schuman have recently begun performing together and they plan on continuing to perform at the Open Mic Nights. Their performance on the electrical guitar and the djembe (hand drum) brought loud applause from the audience.
For those interested in listening to a variety of artists, relaxing and discovering new opportunities to express themselves, come to The Crossroads on Tuesday nights from 8-9:30 p.m.
