This site might be full of interesting information someday, I suppose. Right now, though, it is the place to sign up for the Oak Grove Commons Email List.

Now and then we send out announcements of interesting events happening around Oak Grove. It's current focus is the performing arts, including music performances and poetry.

As always, the show starts at 7 pm. Performers can start signing up after the crew arrives. If you have some special need, you can email a day or two ahead to get on the list.

Map to the cafe

Open Mic Night has attracted a great group of performers, and a few new ones appear each month to delight and surprise us. Open Mic performers can request us to announce their gigs through the Oak Grove Commons Email List when they play at local venues. It's like a free service.

Oak Grove Commons is not a business, nor are we affiliated with any particular business (although we really appreciate LIz's Creative Cafe and hope the Open Mic Night helps their business. It's a win-win!) Oak Grove Commons is just a way of sharing our mutual interests in our community and getting connected with each other.

Final Open Mic Night at Liz's Creative Cafe

Sadly, Liz has informed us that the
Cafe is closing. This Open Mic Night
will be the last event at the Cafe.
Here is a letter from Liz about the closing.

The Cafe was such a great place to hold our Open Mics.
The staff greeted us with such warmth and friendliness and
it's hard to imagine a better fit for our creative efforts.

Open Mic Night has been going on for over eight years. It has
grown to be a joyous artistic community with great spirit. At
this point we must turn our attention to finding a new venue.
Ideally, it would be able to hold 50+ people, have a good food
service, adequate parking, and be in the
Milwaukie - Oak Grove - Jennings Lodge area.
If you know of or find such a place, email Edrid
( and we'll check it out.

Come to this last one at Liz's, and then let's keep it going.
