So you think you can sing? The onslaught of reality TV shows has shown there’s a pop star in all of us. Head down to some of these top singalong joints.

Anti-Karaoke

Barcelona

Monday nights in Barcelona mean one thing-Anti-Karaoke. With ex-pat US comedian Rachel Arieff as host, the evening feels like an unlikely cross between a West End musical, a rock concert and a circus act. Sing on the stage of the authentic rock ‘n’ roll Sidecar Club and choose from over 500 songs. With no high-tech TV screen displaying lyrics, wannabee rock gods sing from a music stand with song sheets and dress up in [fb02] amboyant wigs, hats, masks and feather boas to look the part. The energy is electric, there’s enthusiasm galore and the sound system is incredible. The “fans” will make you feel like a star, too.
