Best of Boston

2008 BEST Open Mic

Cantab Lounge

For over 15 years, this Central Square hangout has been giving aspiring musicians their shot at fame (or, at least, a moderate degree of name recognition). Monday is the big night, with high-quality sound and sets that range from blues to folk to a cappella. Presiding over all is host Geoff Bartley, a benevolent presence who keeps the tempo from dragging.
