Out of the Bedroom (OOTB) launched in 2001 and has consistently had three main objectives:

  • To promote the creation and performance of original music.
  • To provide a platform for musicians in the Edinburgh area to reach a wider audience.
  • To stimulate a vibrant and dynamic original music culture in the Edinburgh area.

OOTB hosts an open mic night every fortnight on Thursdays at Woodland Creatures, 260-262 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5EL and entry is free. The night runs from 8pm to 11pm and there is a feature act at the end of the evening. The open mic slots are from 8pm – 10.15pm and sign up for an open mic slot starts from 7.30pm. Sign up is on a first-come, first-served basis. OOTB does not allow pre-booking of slots or booking by proxy, i.e. someone other than the performer booking a slot.

Performers should only play original material, although there may be some rare cases where this rule is relaxed. Open slots last between 10-15 minutes (two to three songs), depending on the number of acts who want to perform. OOTB includes “squashee” slots where musicians are allocated a one-song slot during busy evenings. The OOTB host reserves the right to allocate slots as appropriate.

A house guitar is provided for performers and there is an in-house PA. OOTB provides a host and sound technician for the evening.

OOTB ask audiences not to chat during the performances; there is space to chat in the main bar. OOTB has at least one short break to allow for comfort break, chat, buying of drinks, etc.
