It’s the second Tuesday of the month, which means all female MCs who sign-up for Austin Mic Exchange, the open-mic night for local hip-hop artists, will be placed at the top of the performance list. At the exciting event, participants are given the chance to show off in front of a crowd that can be seen as unofficial judges. The open-mic night was created by Miss Manners, host of Hip Hop Hooray on KOOP Radio, and P-Tek, a local rapper, in an effort to build Austin’s hip-hop community.

Details: 11 p.m. Tuesday. Free. Spider House Cafe & Ballroom, 2908 Fruth St. 512-480-9562,
