LIEGE, Belgium – For my 12th city installment of my worldwide open mic guide today I am loading my Liège, Belgium page. As a reminder, it all started with my now very popular Thumbnail Guide to Paris Open Mics, Jam Sessions and other Live Music, and due to that guide’s success, I decided this year to do a similar guide for each of the cities I travel to during my worldwide open mic tour.
Musically, Liège is More Than Meets the Eye for Open JamsYou might not expect that Liège would be such a lively city musically, but there is music all over, and jams sessions in bars aplenty. The problem is the jams are constantly changing location, and they start and fold at an even greater rate than in many larger cities, in my experience. For the moment, I have only a couple of places on my list. I have been unable to find out if the third place I intended to visit this weekend is still operating its jam, but if I find it is, I will add it to the list. I may in the near future also decide to add the couple of open mics I know of in Brussels. But in the interest of getting this edition of the guide set up now, while still in Liège, I am putting it up with the only two open mice/jams I currently am sure of.
Worldwide Open Mic Guide Philosophy
The only guide I am really in a good position to update regularly is that of Paris, since I live there. But I decided to do guides to all the other 20 and more cities on my worldwide open mic tour in order to give the knowledge I have personally of each city’s open mics. The guide has links to sites I know of local guides that may be more up-to-date, but I have chosen to list the open mics or jam sessions that I have played in myself. There may be others that I know of, but if I have not played there, I will not include it on the list. That way, the user learns a little of my own impressions. But I cannot be as certain that the guide is up-to-date – so check before you go.
So here, now, in any case is the Thumbnail Guide to Liège Open Mics, Jam Sessions and other Live Music. Please do help me whenever you have information to give me on venues.
