Gassy’s set for open mic takeover

Cathays’ musical hotspot Gassy Jacks’ weekly open mic night is set for a one-off shakeup as students from Cardiff University’s school of journalism descend upon it for a takeover on December 9. The event will be an opportunity for students and lecturers alike to showcase a whole variety of musical talents.

Jess Rayner, choir coordinator from the magazine journalism strand, remarked on the group’s progress, “We’ve just done a recruitment drive for more members. We have a few strong singers but we want a variety of different vocal talents to compliment our chosen songs.”

The Gassy Jack’s open mic night has been run for a number of years by the Live Music Society and attracts between eight and 20 performers every Tuesday.
