On Wed. Nov. 11, the local Palmetto Acoustic group presents another Palmetto Acoustic Bi-Annual Shootout at Muddy Waters Coffee Bar (1331 Ashley River Road, 843-225-3683) with local songwriter and guitarist Aaron Levy (of local band White Rhino) as the main emcee. Levy and Palmetto Acoustic director Madeline Evans will judge the musical stylings and instrumental skills of six songwriters.

“One change will be that they all have to write a song based on the audience-suggested theme of ‘tangerines,'” says Evans. The format will be three songs in the first round (including the tangerine one), and the three top finalists will each play two more songs. Performers include Samantha Kirshtein, Bob Dassing, Kristi Starr, Kara Hesse, Jim Lundy, Becca Bessinger, and Kevin Church.

Music starts at 7:30 p.m. See myspace.com/palmettoacousticopenmic and muddywaterscoffee.com for more.
