Daniel O'Connell - Society [Eddie Vedder Cover] - Performed at Craft Exchange open mic

Why Open Mic Nights?

Whenever someone asks me why I host open mic nights, one of the first things I tell them is that it is not JUST about the music. Don't get me wrong, The Music is top of the list, but in the end, it is about the PEOPLE who make the music, and the HUMANS who support these people.

Daniel O'Connell

That being said, I take great joy in seeing personal growth in the open mic musicians, on more than just a musical level. Take Daniel O'Connell for instance. Musically, he has grown in leaps and bounds since he started playing open mic. He has effectively taken a nice hobby, and turned it into a craft that he can use to entertain, and yes, even earn money.

However, seeing him grow as a person has to be one of my personal open mic highlights. From a shy-guy-in-the-corner, to, well, a shy guy that is not afraid to get on stage, or even interact off-stage. Now for me as an off-the-charts extrovert, that is not an issue, but I can only imagine how much of a challenge it has to be for a very strong introvert like Daniel.

So with this, I would just like to say that I am super proud of the bloke, and really look forward to seeing where The Music takes him!

Hi @luzcypher

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll definitely go check it out.

Hey @luzcypher

I just saw the following:

RECENT CHANGES TO DTUBE NOW REQUIRE THAT DTUBE IS THE FIRST TAG WHEN USING DTUBE. TO ENTER OPEN MIC WE NEED OPENMIC TO BE THE FIRST TAG SO WE CAN UPVOTE YOU WITH THE OPENMIC TRAIL AND INCLUDE YOU IN THIS WEEKLY POST OF ENTRIES

Does that mean that I can't use @dtube if I want to enter #openmic ? Or how do we work around this?

It means the openmic trail will not be able to upvote your entry if openmic is not the first tag. It also means I might miss your entry on the weekly See Who Played Open Mic post as it must be added manually which increases the chance of me missing it. It does not disqualify you. As usual, please add a YouTube video as well if you use Dtube. Thanks for entering.
