Owens certainly is not about to apologize. He's more apt to quote what's printed at the bottom of the information sheet he gives to every player when they sign up: "If you don't win, it doesn't mean you suck!"
Sean Smith knows he doesn't suck, but as the second finalist at this week's Eddie's open-mic competition torches on about her long lost love, he does start to vent some of his frustration with the open-mic game. Week after week of driving from Chattanooga and playing his heart out, he gripes, only to get voted out in the finals.
"I love the competition aspect here at Eddie's," he says, "because it forces you to improve yourself. Yes, it can be frustrating, but that's why I started volunteering to be a judge -- so I could see things from the other side and better understand my own frustration."
While Smith vents, the third finalist is announced. It's Sean Smith. Surprised to hear his name, Smith offers a coy look -- as if to say "forget everything I just said" -- and runs off to fetch his guitar. Tonight, he'll get to do one more song.
Eddie's Attic holds its open-mic night every Monday, starting at 8 p.m. Call 404-377-4976 for more information. The Red Light Café's open-mic night is every Wednesday, starting at 8 p.m. Call 404-874-7828 for more information.
