The Lizard Lounge Open Mic Challenge is a showcase of original acoustic music.
After all acts have performed our guest judge will pick a final three to play one more song. From those three our judge will pick a winner!

Our Judge is focusing on these five categories:
1. Songwriting (All songs must be original to be in the challenge)
2. Vocal performance – (Sing… Sing a soooong! Sing out loooooud… sing out strooong!)
3. Playing ability – (For instrumentals, playing ability counts twice in place of vocal ability)
4. Stage presence – (RAWK! And most importantly, enjoy your set!)5. Audience response – (Yup! Your pals get a vote as well!)
5. Audience Response - (Yup! The crowd has a say as well!)
