Week 5 brought excitement at the Tilted Kilt Open Mic Competition! Even more new performers came pouring in this week as well as many of our regulars! Mike Sick-boy brought his fans and brought a confident and rockin’ performance to take home 1st place and a Musicians Outlet Gift Certificate. Mike will now move on to the finals and compete for the grand prizes of $500 of music gear from Musicians Outlet, a studio demo recording from S.I.R. Entertainment Services and a 3 day trip to Las Vegas from Crater Lake Vodka! Another extremely close 2nd place this week was awarded to newcomers Pharm Techs (Rezident & Scoonz). Actual pharmacy techs by day and hip hop artists by night, these guys brought a crowd and knew how to work it. They each took home Musicians Outlet Gift Certificates. 3rd place was awarded to Miranda McCool who graced us with an original country tune. Miranda took home a pair of Wet & Wild Palm Springs tickets.

The audience not only screamed and cheered for our competitors this week, but once again we had fantastic giveaways for the loudest and rowdiest fans! Those audience members took home great quality movie t-shirts, hats and souvenirs from The Mary Pickford Theater.
