This event has been going on for a few months at Creative City Centre (1843 Hamilton St.) What usually happens is three or four local musicians are recruited to talk informally about their song-writing process and perform together as part of a song-writing circle. Then later on the floor is opened up to anyone who wants to perform. If that’s of interest to you, you’re requested to please bring your own instrument. There’s a $5 drop-in fee at the door, and the event is licensed in case you need a bit of liquid courage to climb on stage and showcase your chops.

The show gets going at 8 p.m., and tonight’s songwriters are: Marshall Burns (RahRah, The Lonesome Weekends), Cameron Wensel (Black Drink Crier), Carl Johnson (Library Voices) and Devon Floyd (The Lonesome Weekends).
