Look below for EVERYTHING you need to know!


  • Who can perform? 

We invite all artists, poets, singers, songwriters, comedians, emcees, journalists, public speakers, motivational speakers, etc… to come out, network and enjoy great music, spoken-word poetry and uplifting stories of why they call Beijing home.

  • What stories, music or poems can be performed? 

Our goal is to keep it fun, and keep it uplifting. And we will leave it at that.

  • How do we sign up to perform? 

To perform at An Ode to Beijing, you have three ways of signing up:

  • Add ND (@NicoleDenise) on WeChat and ask to be added to the list.
  • Sign up on the performer list in person when it goes out at 7:30PM.
  • Sign up on the list during the show -- as the night unfolds, as inspiration strikes.


  • In what order will performers be called to the stage? 

We will proceed down the list in order at 8:30PM.

  • For anyone with music, you must have your music on a USB drive for the DJ.
  • How long do performers have on stage? Everyone has between five and ten minutes.
  • If you’re not in the building when it’s your turn to hit the stage, you will be skipped.
  • At 9:30, the second portion of the Open Mic night will start. If you feel compelled to read and/or to perform, feel free to rock the stage w a poem, song or story. We will proceed down the list in order.


  • How can I purchase tickets? Via Clear Cut or at The Venue on the night of the event while tickets last!
  • What’s the dress code? Wear red! In Chinese culture, Red 红 (hóng) — symbolizes enthusiasm, fervor, and luck. I feel we should all be so lucky to call Beijing home. -ND 


I wanted a night where creatives could come together and simply connect over music, poems and stories. With Beijing as the backdrop. I also wanted a night to celebrate all the folks who have supported me throughout this Beijing experience. It’s been a wild ride! -ND

See you there!
