Alt 90s Sing Along

Take a chill pill, pop music! There’s no room for sugary swill at SecretFormula’s 90’s ALTERNATIVE SING-ALONG, where grunge and rock are reigning supreme. On Friday, April 22nd at Union Hall, prepare your ear drums for over 2 hours of your favorite 90’s alt-rock music videos (Nirvana, Radiohead, No Doubt, Alanis Morissette, Green Day, et al.) with all the lyrics projected on the big screen so you and all your friends can sing (and skank/mosh) along together. No microphones and no waiting your turn to sing! It may smell like Teen Spirit, but that’ll just be because we’re sweating so much from all that dancing.
