It is Open Mic Nights with a face Lift, we reviving the Open Mic night that used to happen at the Nile Crocodile but just at The Zeplins Wonderboom. This year it works a little difrent 3 bands on the night and each band pays R200 for twenty tickets.
These tickets they can sell to get there money back and make a little bit of a profit or they can give away. There is an extra incentive for bands to play Plug & Play, every fifth week there will be a competition between the top four bands of the previous four weeks to play for a paid gig of R2000. How it works is the top four bands by 40 tickets each for R400. If they want to pick a slot they can by 10 extra tickets for R100.
