If you like the idea of social sports but are more inclined to belt out some tunes in the shower, check out District Karaoke league. Now in its second year, District Karaoke is “D.C.’s only social, team-based karaoke league,” according to the website.
Over the course of eight weeks, teams of up to eight people perform solo and group karaoke numbers, which are then scored by fellow competitors. This season there will be five divisions, taking place on different weeknights around the area, including Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Policy, 1904 14th Street NW.
The highest scoring teams from each division go on to semifinals and finals. The season culminates in a citywide final round at Penn Social (801 E Street, NW). Some weeks are themed, for instance there’s a “Disney & Showtunes” night and a “90s Mixtape” night.
Registration is open now for teams and individuals. Don’t miss your chance to claim karaoke dominance — and a T-shirt, which is included in the registration price ($55.00 per person).
In DC, more than 31,000 victims of domestic violence placed a call for help last year.
To raise awareness and funds to prevent domestic violence, District Karaoke, a social, team-based karaoke league, is partnering with the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCCADV) to host a karaoke fundraiser to bring awareness towards preventing domestic violence.
The event will be held on Wednesday, December 5, at 7 pm at Policy Restaurant & Lounge at 1904 14th Street NW.
