I was not at my best, but it was ok. I was ignored by most of the remaining audience after my first song.

A message for anyone who wants to perform at an open mike. Have your act together. Have all of your gear ready so you can start performing in a minute or two. Don't take 15 minutes setting up for a 15 minute set. Leave your amps at home, leave all of your effects pedals at home (unless they are integral to a certain song). Just bring your instrument and show us what you can do. Don't waste the time of the audience or the other performers.
