Montreal Christmas Crowd Caroloke Singalong 2017

Sherwin's Quirky Events

Company website

So, as some of you know, every year I like to record a drunken karaoke album of myself singing Christmas carols. Then I burn a CD, come up with a silly cover, and then hand them out to friends and family as gifts because it is a riot and a hoot.

Then a couple years back, I got tired of singing by myself, and decided to create an event where we could all sing together! And you came out! And we recorded a whole album in one night and I sent everyone a link to download the enormous album we sang into being.

AND THIS YEAR WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN!

On the night of December 12th, come sing it loud, proud, and in a crowd as we cut an album for 2017.

For those of you who are coming for the first time, it will be a crowd karaoke sort of situation where we play the music and project the lyrics and everyone sings drunkenly together. The whole thing will be recorded, and I will take the audio home and cut tracks and make up some cover art and then everyone will get a download link they can distribute to family and friends. We can cut a Christmas album in three hours of drunk, raucous singing!

And if you're curious what the whole thing sounds like, here is just one of the tracks we recorded a year ago: https://soundcloud.com/inconsolablecat/029-oholynight

Mainline Theatre
3997 Blvd. St-Laurent
(Just south of Duluth on the East side of the street)

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017
Doors at 8, Warmup songs at 8:30, and recording begins at 9 PM. We go till around midnight.

$10 admission.
(If you would like an actual CD mailed to you with the final album on it, sign up with the organizer at the event with your address. It'll cost you another $10 for burning, packaging and mailing, though. And no guarantee it'll get to you before Xmas!)

Regretfully, the Mainline Theatre is not wheelchair-accessible. There is a single step through a glass door into the stairwell, and then there are 12 steps from there up to the theatre floor. There are 3 single-stall gender-neutral bathrooms on the premises, but none accomodate wheelchair-users.

18+ (as alcohol will be available for purchase)

Un nouvel atelier du Théâtre MainLine! Il peut être parfois difficile de construire ce genre de partenariat. Cet atelier propose des pistes claires et simples à suivre avec la Directrice générale et artistique du Théâtre MainLine Amy Blackmore et inclut des conseils personnalisés pour les projets à venir des participantes et participants. Nous discuterons des différentes formes de commandites, comment les obtenir et les maintenir tout en gardant votre projet éthique et authentique.

A hot new platform for performance experimentation hosted by contemporary dance artist Karen Fennell. Emerging and established performance-makers are invited to share their freshest and most burning ideas in works of 10 minutes or less. Stick around afterwards for drinks and informal discussion –- Did YOU think THAT was DANCE ...?!

Back by popular demand! Thinking about producing your own work? Take a straight-forward self-producing workshop with MainLine Theatre's Executive & Artistic Director Amy Blackmore. The workshop will include tailored advice and feedback stemming from questions regarding upcoming projects produced by those attending. We will also cover the DOs and DON'Ts of DIY producing on topics such as marketing, fundraising, production, finances and administration.
