WE ARE TURNING TWO!
Jack It is now a toddler and we are celebrating it like how we would celebrate a two year old! There will be music, singing, poetry, dancing and all the stuff that comes with a birthday party! We’ve done two years worth of open mics for the ruthless, the passionate and we’d like you to come celebrate our #LepakHard journey with singer Leaism and a few more acts that the team is very fond of!
In the usual spirit of Jacking It, we encourage performers to bring their art and register at the door for open mic slots. Each open mic performer gets 5-7 minutes on stage so please be sure to be mindful of your time. Don’t forget to come early too – registration opens at 7pm
