Jack It is an open mic for the ruthless, for the passionate, for the overdriven performers looking for a fix of the stage. It is also for the lepak crowd whose love is to celebrate ruthless, passionate, overdriven performers. Every show is a celebration at Jack It and every show is a lepak session and we #LepakHard!
In the usual spirit of Jacking It, we encourage performers to bring their art and register at the door for open mic slots. Registrations open at 7pm, so don’t forget to come early!
