Open mic night at The Wolf

Every Tuesday at 7 p.m., Lone Wolf Coffee House hosts an open mic night. Participants must perform two songs of their choice, and the audience members must make a minimum purchase of $5. Senior Kate Sullivan has been performing at The Wolf for over a year and half.

“I don’t really know why I started performing. I like to sing and play the guitar; it’s fun to do that for other people. Open mic night at The Wolf was really chill and really fun and there was people like me playing, so I stuck with it,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan’s favorite song to perform is an original piece called “Good Things.”

“I just love making other people smile when I perform and just have a good time. I like to sing and that’s what I love to do, but it also makes people really happy when I do it, so that’s the part I love most. When I mess up and am not prepared and make mistakes, it’s not a big deal. Most of the time people don’t realize it, but I don’t like it because I know I could’ve done better. When I mess up it sucks, but it just happens,” Sullivan said.

Juniors Gwenn Pietrowski and Allison Smith are in the process of preparing to play at The Wolf on Tuesday, March 3.

“I heard about The Wolf because of my friend Hanna Benoski, who goes to watch all the time. Me and Allison are planning on performing ‘The Way,’ by Ariana Grande acoustic version, and also ‘Sweater Weather’ by The Neighborhood. I cannot wait for all my friends to come out and support me, but I am the most nervous about messing up. It’s just scary knowing that something could happen and I could embarrass myself in front of a lot of people,” Pietrowski said.

The girls practice once a week at Pietrowski’s house. This will be Pietrowski’s first time performing, while Smith has performed there before.

“I’m excited to perform with Gwenn because this performance will be different than some of my other ones. It will be less serious and just more fun,” Smith said. The way is one of my favorite songs to sing, and Gwenn and I work really well together when we perform it.”
