"Tuesday night is open-mic night," proclaims The Klinic, a bar, grill, and busy music venue located in the Greenbush and nestled appropriately between two hospitals. Musicians are encouraged to take advantage of amps, drums, and audio provided by the club for these shows.
Two emcees who have hit the stage there recently are The Verbal Architect and SkYy. The former is currently collaborating with Germany-based DJ Nordstern on an album, while the latter freestyles at various open-mikes around town. "The hip hop culture in Madison is great," declares SkYy. "People show me lots of love when I'm on stage doin' open mic or when I'm kickin' freestyles at a house party."
A five-minute concert clip of the pair performing at The Klinic follows below.
There are also three briefer live concert clips of The Verbal Architect and SkYy performing over the last few months. These can be viewed here, here, and here. More upcoming shows at the South Park Street bar and grill can be found at The Klinic calendar and The Guide on TDP.
