Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center has announced that StarsDay, the new free open-mic event which debuted in June at the Bankhead Theater, will now be extended through October 2019. Designed to encourage local musicians, vocalists, and spoken word artists to share their talents with the community, StarsDay takes place the last Wednesday of each month in the outdoor courtyard of the Bankhead Theater. In addition to the already announced StarsDay on August 28, the event will now be held September 25 and October 30.
Beginning at 6:00 pm, any musician, artist or group can sign up to perform and will be assigned a time slot based on space available. Two microphones will be available for use, but musicians are responsible for bringing their own instruments and any other equipment needed. The Bankhead House Band “Force of Magic” will also perform at each event.
Admission to the family-friendly StarsDay is free and beverages and snacks will be available for sale from concessions. Entry to the courtyard is through the gate to the right of the Bankhead Theater box office at 2400 First Street in downtown Livermore.
Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit offering wide-ranging programs that provide access to the arts for the Tri-Valley community and beyond. Together, the Bankhead Theater and Bothwell Arts Center are home to eight resident performing arts companies and over 40 studio artists and cultural arts instructors.
