Pub Choir's 1st Birthday

Celebrating a year of communal karaoke — with cake.

Like karaoke? Fond of singing in public in general, whether you're solo or in a group? Then it's time to up your crooning game. Pub Choir is exactly what it sounds like — aka a gathering of folks belting out a tune, together, in a bar. It's basically what happens whenever someone puts 'Wonderwall' or 'Weather With You' on the jukebox, but in a more organised fashion.

The event happens monthly; however, after a year of getting musical with a crowd, they're throwing an extra special shindig to celebrate their first year. On March 15, Pub Choir will be heading on over to The Triffid for what's certain to be a loud birthday party — and yes, that means Newstead will be alive with the sound of music this time around.

Just like the usual get-togethers, participation costs $10, plus whatever you'd like to drink — and yes, singing and sipping go hand-in-hand. There'll also be cake and special guests, plus more merriment after the sing-along stops. Oh, and a t-shirt gun, apparently.

If you're not usually the type of person to unleash their inner Beyonce in front of the masses, don't worry. The great thing about choirs is that everyone is singing, so you are literally a voice in the crowd. In fact, you might just find joining in the fun cathartic. If you can't feel free when you're crooning along with hundreds of others, when can you?
