For the second half signup, line up next to the microphone on stage during the five minute break in between halves and wait for the list to get to you. Keep in mind that each half has its own signup list. So if you don’t get called during the 1st half, you need to re-signup for the 2nd half. Sorry, you can only perform at one half per night. They usually call up about 12-15 people each half at an Open Mic, depending if they have a special feature or not. Sadly, they cannot guarantee that all who signup will read.
