Thursday night marked the first transition of The Speakeasy Open Mic event to an outdoor drive-in format. Drivers parked their cars around a small pallet stage with a sound system that broadcasted the performances into the vehicles' radios. The Speakeasy has been operating since late 2017, offering a platform for budding musicians and poets. Many artists said social issues like police brutality and COVID-19 have influenced their creative processes lately.
