Tonight’s program, notes Sounds producer Heather Dalton, was born of nostalgia: “Growing up in the ’70s and being huge fans of the original Gong Show, we thought it would be fun to celebrate the close of the season...and give people a chance to make giant asses of themselves.” During the show, brave contestants can do whatever they want on stage, though they risk getting “gonged” if the performance derails. But with Sid Pink as host, a revolving panel of comedic heavyweights like Kristin Rand, Heather Snow, Sam Tallent and Mara Wiles in the judges’ box, and live music by Denver three-piece Rubedo, the evening promises to be entertaining regardless of the contestants’ talent level.
Live Gong Show begins tonight at 7 p.m. at 3 Kings Tavern, 60 South Broadway; tickets are $7 at the door for the 21-and-up evening. For more information, or to sign up ahead of time, go to facebook.com/events/1414362642130801.
