Carbondale Arts invites folks to pick a favorite jam for Saturday lip sync party

IF YOU GO…

What: Carbondale Arts Lip Sync Battle

Where: Batch, 380 Main St., Carbondale

When: 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9

Carbondale Arts and Roaring Fork Beer Co. will present Carbondale’s inaugural lip sync battle at Batch, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

“I think it’s a great way for people to get together and be goofy and have fun,” Amy Kimberly, Carbondale Arts executive director, said.

Kimberly says she got the idea from the long-standing lip-sync contest a local radio station in Telluride (KOTO) has done every year for 30 years.

“We are certainly hoping to see it grow year after year,” Kimberly added.

“There are so many ways to go with lip sync, and the best part about it, is you don’t have to be able to sing. You can be a rock-and-roll star.”— Amy Kimberly, Carbondale Arts executive director

With 20 spots available for the event, Kimberly is signing people up until 7:15 p.m. Saturday night.

There is no entry fee for the battle, and individuals as well as groups are accepted.

“You can get up there on your own, or you can get a few friends together,” Kimberly said.

Entrants must provide their song, along with props and costumes.

“There are so many ways to go with lip sync, and the best part about it is you don’t have to be able to sing. You can be a rock-and-roll star,” Kimberly said.

She added that lip sync can be a very creative process. While it might seem easy, it takes practice, she said.

Organizers will have a panel of judges, who will pick the winner of the event.

“The winner is going to walk with $200 in cash, so it’s well worth it to put a little effort in,” Kimberly added. “We highly recommend props and costumes.”

Batch will also donate 10 percent of its sales for the night to Carbondale Arts.
