RiverCity Rock Star Academy is exactly what it sounds like: A School of Rock! They’ve been teaching aspiring rockers of all ages since February of 2015. An additional awesome layer to this school is they use musicians from the community, actual rockers, to be the teachers. It’s a fantastic organization. As far as I know, this is the first time they’ve opened their doors for an open mic and jam (don’t quote me). There are a lot of open mics in town, but this is one that the kids will probably feel most comfortable. This is open to all – all ages and all skill levels. Drop in, or stay the whole time. What a great Thursday night with the fam, huh? RiverCity Rock Star Academy is located at 2769 19th St. SE. Phone: 503-689-8372.
