Guts and Glory

All eyes are on you as you take the stage. Adrenaline pumps through your veins as throngs of friends cheer you on. The music starts, you take a deep breath, and you go for it.

Welcome to Queen City Karaoke, Boston's only social karaoke league. It's team-based, which means you roll with your crew, or make new friends as a free agent. It's competitive, meaning you take it just as seriously as everyone in the "ball" leagues (meaning you take it way more seriously than you should). Your fellow singers are your judges, and you'll return the favor, with our scientifically-tested online scoring system."

Lynn Lawless

League Manager

Lynn is the League Manager of Independence Karaoke. Lynn is an enthusiast of many things including karaoke (of course!) her company softball team, laugh echoes, the elderly, her cat Vivian, a good bargain, and walking as a mode of transportation. When Lynn is not out promoting IDK you can find her channeling April Ludgate at her corporate desk job, memorizing song lyrics to later dominate the stage, and always living her best life.

    The More We Drink, the Better You Sound

  • I should tell you our unofficial motto: Anyone can kick a ball, but only ballers can belt a ballad.

    The Commissioner

  • We compete. It's not really about the winning; it's about having fun. But the competition is the fun.
