Lost Art Open Mic
Lost Art Open Mic Performance Index
This is a listing of all performances recorded during the Lost Art Open Mic's run (audio recordings only - video recordings are not included in this list). This list includes only those performances which were committed to tape or to digital files; some were not recorded due to the request of the artist(s) involved, technical difficulties, or because (particularly in the very earliest days) the night itself was passed over and not archived. The listing for each night follows the order of the performances as they occurred:

If the title of a piece or song is not known and / or was not given, the first line is quoted instead.

For a listing of Lost Art (and all other open mic) videos on the site, see the Index of Open Mic Videos.
