Best Open Mic

1st Place: The Plus
2nd Place: The Mousetrap
3rd Place: The Stones Throw

There’s no shortage of opportunity for musicians, poets, and comedians to take a shot at performing live in Eau Claire. The local favorite, The Plus (208 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire), features the Artisan Evenings open mic hosted by Sean Jones, a perfect example of the variety of local talent, featuring numerous local musicians as well as a strong comedy set at the end of each Tuesday night. Combined with half-off appetizers and tap beers from 9pm to midnight, the open mic’s popularity isn’t all that shocking. In second, The Sunday night open mic at The Mousetrap (311 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) gives aspiring musicians the chance to perform on one of the cities best rock stages. The Stones Throw (304 Eau Claire St., Eau Claire) open mic comes in third, with its Thursday-night blend of music and occasional comedy offerings. —Alex Tronson
