The videos seen here are part of the Open Mic Documentary, which is a series of 1 hour shows created for Public Access TV. The shows consist of material filmed at open mics throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and they are currently airing for 1.6 million viewers in San Francisco and 9 East Bay cities: Alameda, Berkeley, Castro Valley, Fremont, Hayward, Newark, San Leandro, San Lorenzo and Union City.

My favorite is Julie Larson (starting at 6 minutes in).
