   OPEN MIC MONDAYS at THE PAINTED LADY

featuring Host NELSON SOBRAL
The Monday Night Magik Band

Our Open Mic Mondays are very special to us.


Our view on songwriting is that it's a craft to be honed everyday, and with talent and work, and the stars aligning just so, it can evolve to high art... And as serious as that sounds, rest assured, there's more than a little bit of fun going on around here... ; ) And the stars - they align more than we know.


      
WHEN:
---> 10pm every Monday.
---> Sign up at 9pm sharp.

---> Special feature performer every Monday at 9:15pm


       HOW MUCH TIME DO I HAVE ON STAGE?:
---> 2 songs per performer.

        IS IT ONLY ACOUSTIC?
---> Short answer... No.
---> We're Electrified. And Acoustic.

       WHAT KIND OF MUSIC...?
---> All genres welcome. We've engineered them all... You'll

        sound great.

       I'M A MAGICIAN. I'M A VENTRILOQUIST. I'M 

       A COMEDIAN. I'M A MIME. MAY I STILL PERFORM?
---> Short answer... No. We're keeping it strictly music. Beat

         poetry, Rap poetry excepted (Shram) as it's musical.
---> We've welcomed various diciplines in the past, and we've

        had a great time, yet we've decided it's best to organize a

        separate night to allow the necessary space, time, and

        unique vibe they each deserve. Sorry folks, but on the

        bright side, please come in + talk to us about a show idea!

Nelson Sobral, pictured above, is an enormously talented, and versatile, songwriter and musician. He's a very bright light - a powerhouse really - and his warm, affable energy and musical empathy are infectious and immensely heartening. And all of this, is only exceeded by his humility. Amazing...


Nelson tirelessly champions other artists, is a staunch supporter of the Toronto music scene, and is a consummate Professional Musician. You gotta hear this cat play... You can check him out every Monday.


All of us here at The Painted Lady are honoured to have Nelson, and the awesome crew that comprise 'The Monday Night Magik Band', host our Open Mic Mondays.


Thank you's to Troy Larabie, Selcuk Suna, Marcus Walker, and of course Nelson... And to all others who join in every Monday!


And check out Nelson's band - you're in for a treat:
