Be proud of your poor taste in music at the No Shame Sing-Along

There is need to be ashamed of your love for Rick Astley or Phil Collins. Come to The Action Pack's No Shame Sing-Along and belt out  your favorite soft rock hits with a theater full of cheerful crooners. Just leave your shame at the door. 

Be proud of your poor taste in music at the No Shame Sing-Along

Every music fan likes to think that their taste in audio entertainment is pristine. Nobody wants to admit that they enjoy bad songs and worse pop singers but the truth is this — we all have skeletons in our iTunes library.

Whether it’s that Smash Mouth song you just can’t bring yourself to delete from your playlist because you made out with your first crush to the wailings of Steve Harwell or it’s your total inability to change the radio whenever the Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris” comes on and transforms you into a car karaoke master, we all have a soft spot for sappy soft rock and sugary pop tunes.

We aren’t here to judge at the Alamo Drafthouse, though. In fact, with the help of The Action Pack, masters of the interactive theatergoing experience, we’re screening the No Shame Sing-Along in September.

This two-hour tour through the best (and worst) of soft rock will take you on a tour of the essentials in tearstain-soaked lyrics and middle school mix tape memories. From Hall & Oats to Phil Collins to the Counting Crows, we’re bringing out the heavy hitters.

It’s up to you to sing-along, though. No one is going to think any less of you if you prove to the world you know all the words to Peter Gabriels’ “In Your Eyes.” In fact, this is the one night of the year where your uncanny knowledge of Rick Springfield’s discology might come in handy.

Come with a group of your best friends or arrive solo for a heart-wrenching night of emotional turbulence — we’re turning the theater into a karaoke amphitheater where everybody is a star. But buy your tickets today because this is an event you don’t want to miss out on.

Thursday, September 15 @ 7 PM — Mason Park
