Open Mic at The Majestic Saloon // Every TUESDAY night
There’s a new open mic in downtown Northampton at the recently opened Majestic Saloon craft beer bar at 24 Main St. The open mic is hosted by 12-string guitarist and singer Burrie Jenkins, who previously hosted Sam’s Pizzeria and Cafe’s Friday open mic before the spot closed earlier this year. Last week, I had the chance to play at the Majestic open mic myself and I can tell you that it’s already a vibrant place to catch live local music with everything from original blues and folk ballads as well as your typical rock cover tunes to sing along to. Majestic Saloon, 24 Main St., Sign-up at 6:30 p.m. 7-11 p.m.
This Saturday, Santo Taco is stopping by New City Brewery in Easthampton, bringing with it authentic Mexican food to pair with your ginger beer from 3 to 8 p.m. Santo Taco is a pop-up restaurant that serves up Mexican street food made with local ingredients with organic food options. New City Brewery, 180 Pleasant St (12 Rear), Easthampton.
