Have you ever had the urge to get up on the stage and try your hand at being a Fringe-style artist? If you are one of those "I could do it better" people, it's your lucky day: Prove it when Naropa University's BFA/MFA performance programs host a one-night-only Performance Jam. The event is free in every way, shape and form; billed as a "low-tech playground," it invites participants to join in, onstage or not; show up at 7:30 p.m. at the Naropa Performing Arts Center, 2130 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder, and mix and mingle as you please. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a five-minute slot. Tonight's Daily C.R.A.B., Virgin Sacrifice, is designed just for beginners and their friends: Bring a Fringe virgin, offer them up and compete to win Fringe tix. But first, prepare by writing up a couple of sentences recalling your first time; the rest will unfold in the able hands of host Dave Burdick. Admission is free, it all starts at 10 p.m. at Rueben's Burger Bistro, 1800 Broadway in Boulder.
