New Haven Theater Company Presents / The WORST SONG EVER Contest

  • The Outer Space Ballroom 295 Treadwell Street Hamden, CT, 06514 United States (map)
New Haven Theater Company presents the WORST SONG EVER Contest: a night of awesomely BAD music played well (or at least creatively).

Choose the worst pop song you can think of, and imagine great local musicians performing their take on it LIVE at the Spaceland Ballroom on the night before Halloween. A panel of local celebrity judges (including NPR's Chion Wolf, musician Seth Adam, and DOT Director Doug Hausladen) will choose winners in each of three categories:

1. So Bad It's Good (take a bad pop song and make it your own)
2. Most Faithful Cover (as close to the original as possible)
3. WTF?! (get creative... get weird.)

There will also be an overall BEST IN SHOW winner, which comes with major bragging rights forever (or until next year).
