NOTE: The pre-booked open-mic quota for this month's Velvet Tongue has been met, which means that anyone requesting a spot after the 2nd of May will go onto a "waiting list". There are usually drop-outs on the night, so most of those on the waiting list will probably have the chance to read/perform anyway (and will get in for free).
