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)

Deux mondes. Celui de l'extérieur, avec toutes les incertitudes et le brouhaha de la vie réelle. Celui de l'intérieur, un petit appartement tranquille où vivent trois jeunes adultes. Louis, qui lit beaucoup trop le journal, a des difficultés à contrôler ses angoisses. Charlotte, qui passe d'un gars à l'autre, ne s'aime tout simplement pas. Et Anna, qui sent qu'elle est remplie de pus, se déguise, car tout est plus simple quand elle est déguisée. Ah oui! Il y a aussi cette voix robotique qui nous parvient du téléphone pour nous annonce la fin du monde...

A new bi/multilingual poetry-text-performance cabaret for Montreal, somewhere at the top of a flight of stairs on Boulevard Saint-Laurent. An evening for languages and words, fluidity and hybridity, bruising and joy. Beautiful around the edges.

Un nouveau cabaret bi/multilingue de poésie, littérature et performance à Montréal, quelque part en haut d'un escalier sur le boulevard Saint-Laurent. Une soirée pour les paroles et les mots, les mouvements et les mélanges, les brûlures et les joies. Pour la beauté dans les marges.

A brand new workshop from MainLine Theatre! The sponsorship game can be a tricky one. Take this straight-forward workshop with MainLine Theatre's Executive & Artistic Director Amy Blackmore. The workshop will include tailored advice and feedback for your performing arts projects. We will cover the different kinds of sponsorships that exist, how to get them, how to keep them and how to do it all in an ethical way, true to your project, vision and values.
