The sounds of local artists came pouring out of the Powder Springs Coffee and Bake Shoppe onto the streets of an ordinarily quiet downtown Powder Springs on Friday.
This was the coffee shop's first Open Mic Night, which allowed locals to perform any type of art: spoken word, music, dance and more. Upwards of 14 individual artists and groups performed before a packed crowd despite the coffee shop opening only two months ago.
Co-owner Larry Evans said: "It's just wonderful to hear noise down here."
The coffee shop hopes to have some sort of live performance every Friday night, with Open Mic Night being a monthly event.
