When 9pm hits on Saturday, September 25, you have two choices: you can enjoy crooning 70s, 80s and 90s hits in a crowd at the South Bank Piazza or, if you're in the vicinity, you can expect to hear old-school tunes echoing through the streets. The former sounds much more fun than the latter, of course, and it's what Massaoke Oz will deliver as part of its first-ever gig in Queensland.
The name really does give away all of the relevant info. This is karaoke, but led by a live band — and yes, everyone watching and listening is asked to sing along. Basically, it's what happens when a pub covers band starts their set on a Friday or Saturday night after everyone has had a couple of drinks, but levelled up a few notches.
Nostalgia, live tunes, old hits, balloons, spandex, glitter — they're all a part of the show, which will help send of this year's Brisbane Festival. And, there'll also be a screen projecting the lyrics, so you don't need to remember every word to every banger from decades ago.
