Slate's senior culture editor, Dan Kois, explores the joy & terror of singing in public!
Organized by Slate's senior culture editor Dan Kois, SCARYOKE!!! is an inquiry into the joy and terror of singing in public.
SCARYOKE!!! will be a six-week party: a chance for New Yorkers to sing on a Saturday night, on their lunch hour, or after a morning jog. It is an experiment, encouraging visitors to explore the outer boundaries of their own performative instincts and capacity for risk-taking. It is an exploration of the different modes of public and private singing with three unique singing environments - the privacy of singing in a shower, the semi-privacy of rocking out in a car, and the fully public performance at a karaoke bar. Basically, it's a joy factory. Get in line!
You might be wondering, what makes this scary? We don't take requests and you can't choose your song. You just get the mic, the music starts and if you know the song - you sing it. If you don't - you wing it!
