On the third Thursday of every month, the Whiting opens its doors for After Dark, an event series offering entertainment in a variety of forms: trivia, dance, comedy and – as is the case on January 21 – karaoke.
Whether you’re new to mic or compete each year in the Karaoke World Championships, we’ve compiled a few tips for making the most of Thursday’s event.
- Get a head start by checking out the music selection on SongBooksLive. Just enter the songbook name – skin – and you can browse the nearly 50,000 available songs by artist or title.
- Take part in happy hour, which runs from 8 to 9 p.m. Not only are drinks half-off during this time, but it also gives you the chance to get your name on the karaoke list early.
- Build a good cheering section either by bringing friends or making new ones throughout the night.
- Show your enthusiasm! A high-energy performance (good or bad) is always better than one that’s perfectly pitched but halfhearted.
Don’t sing? No worries. There’s still plenty of room to mingle and enjoy the atmosphere.
The event, open to guests 18 and up, will run from 8-11:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Whiting, located at 1241 E. Kearsley St., Flint. Cover is $5.
