The Last Cafe Lift Open Mic + Canvas Ever

December 1, 2022 - 7:00 pm

San Jose

Join us on Thursday 12/1 to celebrate the last ever Cafe Lift Open Mic + Canvas with a night of awesome live music and art! Come play music, read poetry, perform spoken word, and paint on our open canvas! We will also be serving delicious tacos and boba tea from incredible local vendors!

Since Cafe Lift is closing our doors, we want to give you a chance to take home some amazing artwork created by our talented artists throughout the years, so we will be hosting an art silent auction. Finally, as is our December tradition, don’t forget to wear your ugliest Christmas sweater!

Performance slots are 10 minutes long and 2 songs maximum. Slots will be given by lottery, with names drawn 3 at a time throughout the night, until the list is full. Sign ups start at 7:45PM on the day of the event and will close at 9PM.  


Cafe Lift is an open mic and canvas held every 1st Thursday of the month in South San Jose. Our goal is to connect the music, art, and coffee community by offering an uplifting and friendly environmentCafe Lift is a safe space for expression, so please be respectful to all performers and guests. We are an outreach ministry of Gateway City Church that aims to see love transform lives by creating friendships, cultivating talent, and building up believers.
