Autism Friendly Open Mic

Free Autism Friendly Open Mic Returns to The Lindsay Theater Sept. 17

A free autism friendly Open Mic session, sponsored by The Lindsay Theater, Band Together Pittsburgh and Autism Pittsburgh, returns to the Sewickley Theater on Saturday, Sept. 17.

The event, from 2 to 5 p.m., is open to anyone who wants to sing (including karaoke), play an instrument, do impressions, tell jokes, recite a poem or just say hello. The public is welcome to drop by and see what an Open Mic event is all about.

Longtime Pittsburgh musician John Vento and other members of Band Together will facilitate the event in the Theater’s Community Room and provide instruments, although participants sometimes bring their own.

While the event is free, Band Together requests RSVPs at so that it can provide complimentary snacks to attendees. Typically, about 70 people show up for this popular event, though not all perform.

On Saturdays, parking is free after 1 p.m. in Sewickley, including the municipal lot next to the Theater, Walnut Street and other streets surrounding the Theater.  Ramps from both the lot and Walnut Street offer easy accessibility. Visitors can find parking details and driving directions here.
