Happy Fourth Second Saturdays: Help Out at the '80s Music Video Sing Along at Screening Room

Posted By on Sat, May 10, 2014 at 2:32 PM

Second Saturdays Downtown gets going tonight at 5 p.m. and this month happens to mark the event's four year anniversary—what's proven to be a popular and important revival of what those stricken with Moldy Pueblo love remember as Downtown Saturday Nights.

Lot's of great entertainment tonight, like Tucson's Japanese ensemble drumming group, Odaiko Sonoran; Tucson Circus Arts stilt dance, Mel Rivers formerly from the Drifter; and some desert surf rock from Shrimp Chaperone.

Being that it's Mother's Day weekend, do me a favor, and between all the activity, stroll on in to the Screening Room, 127 East Congress, for the '80s Music Video Sing Along, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. My fantabulous middle-schooler son organized the event to benefit Pima County animal shelters and celebrate what he loves most (next to Marvel)—80s music. It's his Bar Mitzvah project, and you are welcome to come in, cool off, help out and sing along.

From the Facebook page invite:

Sing along to your favorite '80s music videos at The Screening Room, downtown Tucson during 2nd Saturdays Downtown Tucson. (Happy Fourth Anniversary 2nd Saturdays) Costume contest, karaoke contest and family fun. $3 suggested donation and/or a bag of dog or cat food. All donations and proceeds benefit local Pima County animal shelters.

... Bring the kiddos and the grannies — well especially the grannies who remember the words to "99 Luftballons" And dancing of all ages, and abilities, encouraged — super encouraged.
