Actually, well-known rock cover songs work best at the bar open mics. Songs like this last one are better at listening rooms.

Wherever... Open mic street corner coffee shop...
I appreciate the stripped down take of a tune like that.. I'd pay attention if I see someone performing a tune and you get the emotion from it.
Nothing to hide behind so to speak... you're out there for all to see.

But you're speaking from a musician perspective. As a performer (to non-musicians) you do need to pick and choose based on the environment.
I've played this song twice at shows in the last 10 days - both coffee shops, but the first time was a 'feature' spot at a place that IS a listening room. The other time was a 2 hour show at a busy place where 80% of the people are in-and-out getting their caffeine. Guess where the song got applause, and where it got ignored (and where cover songs got the most applause)? :roll:

No... you're speaking from a musicians perspective... :lol: I'm just a listener.
... my original comment saying "open" wasn't meant to be so specific in a little box... open Mic Mike
But good luck wherever you choose to play whatever you choose to play...

Getting close to the October 15 release date for my new album, so better get some more video pre-releases posted! This is (more-or-less) the title track: https://youtu.be/xZ5PJdW9uh8
