For those of you singer/songwriters out there looking for a place to perform, feel free to come on down to Ladd's Inn on Thursday nights and share your music. Ladd's is a small, dark and comfy "dive" bar located on 1204 S.E. Clay in Portland (on the corner of 12th and Clay across from the Shell gas station by the food carts). With a combination of bar, booth, table and couch seating, you'll have plenty of options to enjoy your night. Ladd's offers a generous menu with a full bar and nightly drink specials. For those who come early, there's a pool table, jukebox, video poker and big screen tv as well (although, some are discouraged DURING the open mic). As this is a night to highlight local talent, we welcome performers of all styles. Be it spoken word, instrumentalists, hip-hop, poetry, comedy or the traditional singer/songwriter, all are encouraged to share the stage. Ladd's will be providing a PA system with multiple inputs, two mics with cords and stands, and two guitar cords. There will be a house guitar (acoustic/electric) but the action is high and it has had feedback issues in the past. We recommend bringing your own guitars if possible. There is also an upright house piano freshly tuned! Ideally, we aim to start at 9pm and will go until close. There will be a small, sign-up chalkboard hanging on the wall by the ladies restroom. Performers will have between 3-5 songs depending on the number of people signed up. Must be present to be added on (no calling ahead). Ladd's has a reputation of bringing together good people and good cheer as well as one of the most esteemed bartenders in the biz (Shalina). Whether regular or new-comer, patron or performer, we're most certainly looking forward to seeing you there!
Your Host, Justin
