District Karaoke at RiRa

Trey W. from team Mr. Holland's O Face
District Karaoke, the region’s only social, team-based karaoke league, is currently registering people for Monday nights at Ri Ra Irish Pub in Clarendon.

For 10 weeks, teams compete for a chance to go to the City-Wide Finals. Each night, teams compete in three rounds. The first two rounds are solo performances with a group performance for the third round. What makes District Karaoke special is that everyone at the bar, whether on a team or not, has an opportunity to score the performance. Winners are decided by smart phone voting using District Karaoke's web app.

At the end of the season, District Karaoke will host the top teams from every division at the City-wide Karaoke Championship on April 9, 2013 at Penn Social. Interested singers can register at here as "free agents," as an eight person team, or as a group. Membership costs $55.00 per person. Teams can have a maximum of eight players.

The Winter 2014 season will begin on January 13, 2014. While most of the DC locations are already full, there's still room on Mondays at Ri Ra in Clarendon and at Irish Channel in DC.
