- - - - English Below - - - - Sumarið er komið og fer vel af stað og erum við langflest með breitt bros á vör. Sumrinu fylgir eins og öllum árstíðum hversdagsleiki sem breytist lítið milli ára og hann þarf að brjóta upp með reglulegu millibili svo hann súrni ekki. Ein leið til þess að lífga uppá hversdagsleikann er að skella sér í góðum félagsskap í karókí og því ætla nokkrir fullveðja tónlistarmenn að bjóða uppá slíka skemmtun á KEX Hostel fimmtudaginn 25. maí. KEX Karaoke hefst kl. 20:00 fimmtudaginn 25 maí og eru það engir aðrir en tónlistarmennirnir Guðmundur Óskar Guðmundsson og Hjörtur Ingvi Jóhannsson úr Hjaltalín, Aron Steinn Ásbjarnarson tónskáld, Þorvaldur Þór Þorvaldsson sem hefur slegið takt fyrir Bloodgroup, Jónsa, Samúel Jón Samúelsson o.fl. og Örn Eldjárn gítarleikara Tilbury og Ylju. Gestir á KEX Karaoke geta valið úr um 100 laga banka hjá Karaoke-stjóranum sem verður á svæðinu og er aldrei að vita nema að einhverjir þekktir gestasöngvarar taki lagið. Þetta er í þriðja skiptið sem Karaoke hefur verið haldið á KEX og ætlaði KEX að gliðna í sundur af hressleika 13. janúar síðastliðinn. Sýnishorn frá 2013.
