    I'm going to try and perform at this show I hope I can get a slot this is a first come first serve slot Philly Rising Open Mic Hosted by Boy Wonder. Artists check in at 6:30pm to sign up for a 2-song performance slot. It is recommended that performers arrive at or before 6:30 as the slots often fill up quickly. Slots are offered on a first-come basis. Performances begin at 7:00pm and usually end between 11:00 and midnight. Each performance is judged by a panel that includes someone from the WCL music department, the manager on duty and a representative from sponsors. There is usually also one featured performer each evening (not eligible to win) doing an extended set; scheduled featured performers can be found below.
