Long live rock, I need it every night

Saw you in a mag


I attended my first Karaoke to the Death event this past Sunday night at Old Town's Rocket Grill. This grassroots event has a long (9 year) history and is basically a battle of bad karaoke "artists." The gist is this: If you can't sing, that's good. If you can sing, pick a song completely out of your range and give it a go. Whoever inflicts the most pain wins. Simple really.

In honor of said event, I went looking for a karaoke themed YouTube clip for this week. What I found wasn't what I was looking for, if that makes any sense, but it features Spoon's Britt Daniel singing Wire’s “1 2 X U,” backed by the Punk Rock/Heavy Metal Karaoke Band. Enjoy.

I love the YouTubesday Club, formerly known as DC Rock Club!

I'm wagging my virtual finger at Jimbromski. At least Sacklunch can claim he's been making chocolate. Seems that Jimbromski has been spending A LOT of time walking in the park.

Is that what they do at Rocket Grill on Sunday nights?

The Obama field office I worked in last year was right next door, and Sunday nights were always... err... interesting. It literally sounded like people were dying horrible deaths inside that place.

I can't say for sure what goes down every Sunday night, but this is what happens every President's Day Eve.

I guess you were too busy getting someone elected to go and check it out... Nice excuse.
