WPCK: Pack Theater Radio @ The Pack Theater
9:00 pm

WPCK: Pack Theater Radio is a live “drive-time” radio program for insomniacs, overnight passengers and graveyard shift drones. A multi-media stream of consciousness assembly of a thousand tiny ideas that all weave in and out of each other and into the shadows, WPCK is what it would be like if Genesis P. Orridge had his own podcast network. WPCK is a living, breathing broadcast signal intrusion.

Hosted by lead DJ @b3oc, WPCK is housed in an isolated dilapidated radio station, somewhere just outside of New Los Angeles (a multi-verse that looks like our world but…not.) WPCK is the last telecommunication of the day right after the normal world signs off and the nocturnal world begins to move in the shadows; a pirate radio station of the Underdark.

Executive Producer/Creator: Brian James O’Connell

Director: John Conroy

Technical Director: Gerard Dean Peters

CASTING CALL @ The Pack Theater
8:00 pm

Does this look familiar…?

“Warm, fit, girl-next-door. In this scene Lisa and her friends are barricaded in their cabin by what at first seems to be a deadly force, although it turns out to only be mosquitoes. In the heat of the moment, they come up with a plan to retrieve bug spray left in the car before the mosquitoes finish them off. This plan includes Lisa distracting the mosquitoes with a brief, goofy choreography routine she learned in color guard.”

Welcome to Hollywood, where that project actually existed.

From your submissions we pick some of the most absurd but real casting calls and have our cast improvise their auditions before a panel of illustrious casting agents. Who will be cast? Six actors square off to book the part, but only one will be victorious.

Jump into your favorite video games, from the age-old classics to the latest, cutting-edge releases!
At ARCADE JAM, we celebrate video games by inviting a guest team to perform the “CUT SCENES” – the cinematic scenes that connect different levels of game play in story mode – inspired by surprise clips of video games chosen by your hosts, SKYLARK (Hope Richards, Lillian Pennypacker, and David Aslan).

After our guest team performs, we invite the audience to follow their lead, and join us on stage for a kick-ass forty-minute cut-scene jam. Audience members will be randomly selected into small groups and will each do short scenes (or sets, depending on time) inspired by video game clips. No one will know the clips ahead of time except for the hosts – it could be Pac-Man, it could be Doom, it could be Leisure Suit Larry – it’s anyone’s guess!

So come on down every second Saturday of the month at midnight for ARCADE JAM! It’s the ultimate experience in improv jam technology!

WPCK: Pack Theater Radio @ The Pack Theater
9:00 pm

WPCK: Pack Theater Radio is a live “drive-time” radio program for insomniacs, overnight passengers and graveyard shift drones. A multi-media stream of consciousness assembly of a thousand tiny ideas that all weave in and out of each other and into the shadows, WPCK is what it would be like if Genesis P. Orridge had his own podcast network. WPCK is a living, breathing broadcast signal intrusion.

Hosted by lead DJ @b3oc, WPCK is housed in an isolated dilapidated radio station, somewhere just outside of New Los Angeles (a multi-verse that looks like our world but…not.) WPCK is the last telecommunication of the day right after the normal world signs off and the nocturnal world begins to move in the shadows; a pirate radio station of the Underdark.

Does this look familiar…?

“Warm, fit, girl-next-door. In this scene Lisa and her friends are barricaded in their cabin by what at first seems to be a deadly force, although it turns out to only be mosquitoes. In the heat of the moment, they come up with a plan to retrieve bug spray left in the car before the mosquitoes finish them off. This plan includes Lisa distracting the mosquitoes with a brief, goofy choreography routine she learned in color guard.”

Welcome to Hollywood, where that project actually existed.

From your submissions we pick some of the most absurd but real casting calls and have our cast improvise their auditions before a panel of illustrious casting agents. Who will be cast? Six actors square off to book the part, but only one will be victorious.

After our guest team performs, we invite the audience to follow their lead, and join us on stage for a kick-ass forty-minute cut-scene jam. Audience members will be randomly selected into small groups and will each do short scenes (or sets, depending on time) inspired by video game clips. No one will know the clips ahead of time except for the hosts – it could be Pac-Man, it could be Doom, it could be Leisure Suit Larry – it’s anyone’s guess!

So come on down every second Saturday of the month at midnight for ARCADE JAM! It’s the ultimate experience in improv jam technology!
