    The university I'm coming from (Keele) had a society for musicians that would put on Open Mic nights (I was on the committee for the society). There were also several other Open Mic nights that ran at various bars on the campus. We also had a Folk Club that went on weekly in the postgraduate bar.

    Are there any nights like this run at Aston or, failing that, any good Open Mic nights nearby that anyone knows of?

    They do Sing-Along-Ding-Dong (karaoke) nights every week if that's any help? I think there are various music societies and there's nothing to stop you founding a soc if you can't find what you wnt.
