Live, Unplugged Artists Welcome

First Friday of the month Artist Showcases featuring award-winning ensemble COPUS and guest singer/songwriters, comedians, poets, open mic.

San Francisco, CA (I-Newswire) March 13, 2013 - COPUS is once again returning to its roots of presenting and producing the best indie talent in the Bay Area. Every First Friday of the month - beginning April 5th - the beautiful WestSide ArtHouse will be rockin' with singers, songwriters, poets, instrumentalists and comedians. WestSide ArtHouse is located at 540 Balboa Street at 7th Avenue in San Francisco.

COPUS will be the feature band in the middle of the evening with talented artists performing before and after. COPUS - an acronym for Creation Of Peace Under Stars - is a rap/jazz/fusion ensemble that presents powerful lyrics and beautiful melodies for the conscious listener. The group includes composer/pianist Wendy Loomis, poet/spoken word artist Royal Kent, flutist Monica Williams, bassist Patrick Mahon, drummer Greg McRay, and vocalist Barbara Jaspersen. "COPUS could become legendary if given the opportunity to thrive!" ~Michael Allison, CEO

Unlike so many open mics with rushed timeslots, each artist will have 10 minutes to rise and shine. Artists have the opportunity to sign up in advance on the COPUS CONTACT page to secure a spot. There will also be an open mic signup sheet at the event the night of the show for artists who prefer that spontaneity.

COPUS suggests patrons come early to secure parking spots and perhaps have some dinner at one of the many great Richmond neighborhood restaurants before attending the show. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available for sale at the venue and attendees may bring in their own wine or beer.

Public transportation is encouraged. MUNI line 31 Balboa stops in front of the venue and the 38 Geary is 2 blocks away. Wheelchair accessible.

Time: 8-11pm
Cost: $10 suggested donation sliding scale
