Live Karaoke, World Cup Screening Party + Testify, Northern Soul Night! FREE!!

I know, I know! You're all uber cool, metropolitan, city slickers. Lovers of all that is refined and of the moment.

Well unloosen your stiff upper lips, take the sticks out of your asses and go wild amigos!! World Cup fever is upon us, so let's meetup and party hard!!

The Oobleck (the new music venue adjacent to Alfie Birds) is hosting a FREE event on Saturday 14th June. They're setting up The Oobleck as a beer keller with long trestle tables and benches. Our contact at Alfie Birds has reserved a table for Gig Goers so we can all be together. From about 8 o'clock Rockstar Me will be providing live karaoke (you know you've always longed to pretend to front a live band!!)

This will be followed by the England v Italy match on the big screen at 11pm.

As if this wasn't exciting enough there's also Testify, the northern soul night, taking place upstairs at Alfie's in The Loft till 6am. DJ's Adam Heath, Vic Mullan, David Molloy and Pete Toney will be playing 'the finest in northern soul and banging 60's R&B'.

So whether you're a dyed in the wool England fan, a lover of karaoke, a thwarted rock/popstar, a lover of talc on the floor as you dance, or just an all round fun person, come along and meetup at 7.30pm in The Oobleck.

If you've not been to one of our events before and would like to be met at the door, then please message me or text/call the Birmingham Gig Goers mobile on[masked] (which will be on during the event only).

    It was awesome! It took the maturity and confidence of middle age to behave like a 20-something rock chick, and I had a blast!

      Thanks for the compliment, Monica, though so were you and the other 8 gig goers who came along. I feel very privileged to be part of such a smashing group of people! xx

    Hi everyone. I'm sorry to say that I've got food poisoning and am stuck in bed feeling very poorly. However not to worry as the very lovely Steve O'Connor has agreed to host tonight in my absence (thanks Stevie-babes!!). There's a table booked in my name at The Oobleck. Please note that Steve won't have the Gig Goers mobile with him. I know you'll all have a fabulous evening. I'm just gutted that I can't come out to play on this occasion xxx

      Underneath the headline for 'world cup' etc there's a logo on the right hand side of the screen that says upload. Thanks for taking some pics Monica. Sounds like people had a really good time xx

    I'll be there hopefully by 7:30 and find our table. If you are new or don't already know me I'll be wearing a highly visible pink checked shirt so if can't find us lookout for a lurid fashion mistake.

      Thanks again Steve. I'm sure you're rocking that shirt!!

    Sounds great but I wont be able to make it as there is no way of getting a bus home at the time because I would love to watch the footie too! But definitely into karaoke. I might be a cheat actually because sang professionally in the 1990s in hotels and restaurants around the world!

    • Justine

      I don't think you'd be a cheat, just possibly very overqualified!! See you soon x

    Nice. Most places are charging 5 or 10 quid for the match screening alone.
