Love Bites! 80's Power Ballad Sing-Along

Valentine’s Day—For most of the country, a time to blow some cash on a “romantic” restaurant and pretend like love is forever.

In San Francisco, we know better: tables at good restaurants are only available on random Tuesdays, and if love is forever, why did God make Breakup Songs? Which, by the way, are some of the BEST SONGS EVER. Do you wave a lighter in your expensive restaurant to “That’s Amore?” No. You wave a lighter to “You Give Love A Bad Name.” Until your fingers burn! Do you sing along to the oh-so-romantic “La Vie En Rose?” Of course not; nobody knows the words to that song. What you sing along to is 80s POWER BALLADS. Until you’re hoarse. So dust off that old Warrant t-shirt and join us for the beloved San Francisco anti-Valentine’s Day tradition of mass karoke in a crowded movie theater. LOVE BITES!

Tickets are $10, you must purchase them on your own http://sfindie.com/2013/01/674/

    Its 100% sold out.

    I'm literally standing first in line about 30 minutes before they open. I'll find out if they even gave tickets.

    I'd like to do this, but, as we are aware, tickets may be scarce. I can be there around 9ish, but I may be too far down the line to actually get a ticket.
    Let me know any thoughts on a back-up plan...

      Jay offered to grab some (see above)

    I'll go try to get tickets at the Roxie right after work. Should be there at 8pm. If any are left, I don't mind getting tickets for others if they allow me.

    Would anyone be interested in grabbing food before singfest? Obviously something casual since it will be Valentine's and every restaurant will be all of the busy.

      Sounds good to me

      Soo there is a snag with the food truck meeting spot: http://sf.funcheap.co...­

      Apparently they are having their own event thing. have to RSVP but they are all RSVPed out. I dunno if we'll be able to get in to just grab food.

      Any alternate suggestions or just meet at the roxie.

    I was third in line, I think I was there an hour or so before doors opened. It's early, but knowing how fun it was, I would absolutely do it again.

  • Adam

    How early did you show up last year (to get the day of ticket?)

    February 13, 2013

  • Kevin

    I did manage to get mine at the door last year, but only about 20-30 of us got the same-day tickets before they sold out completely. It was tons of fun, so I highly recommend it, but if you don't have tickets yet, definitely arrive early tomorrow if you want a shot at getting in.

  • Kurtis S.

    I couldn't reach anyone by phone. It's either machines or no answers at this hour. I'll try heading there the day of, but they may already be sold out.

    February 13, 2013

  • Jay

    Couldn't get my ticket online either. Sounds like the box office opens a half hour before the first show and may release more tickets. I'll try that route.

    February 13, 2013

  • Adam

    Was thinking about coming but it looks like tickets are sold out...

    February 13, 2013

    • Brittany C

      They may release more tickets at the door, you can call the Roxy and check.

      February 13, 2013

  • Sara

    Already have my ticket, but I will be there a little late (around 10) Can't wait to see everyone!

    February 13, 2013

  • Jay

    Can't wait to meet everyone. How are we all finding each other at the event?

    February 12, 2013

    • Brittany C

      I'll send out an email that day with meeting place and info

    You know I love you all so dearly <3... but i've never been a fan of valentines day all that much (whether celebrating or anti-celebrating). I dont really like President's day either, but at least i get the day off work for that non-sense holiday. I also can't ignore the words 'mass keroke ' and 'crowded' which make me want to crawl into my anti social hole in the ground. I will miss the fun I know, but I think I'm gonna stay at home for this one. Have fun kids!!! :)

    Gotta go with a mission taco truck on Valentine's.

  • Jessica

    Although this was lots of fun last year, I have a date. May drag him there after dinner depending on when we're done and where we go.

    February 8, 2013

    • Brittany C

      Also, yes!

      February 8, 2013

    • Jessica

      Just looked...nope, no email. Oh well.

      February 8, 2013

  • Sara

    LOL, Jake is actually not getting in town until Friday morning. So I am in!

    February 5, 2013

  • Chelsea

    Oh shit! This beats die hard. The link is for your confirmation page though, just FYI.

    February 1, 2013

    • Brittany C

      Oh link fixed, thanks for letting me know.

      February 1, 2013

    • Chelsea

      No prob. Thought you might not want all your info out there ;)

  • Joey Tang Y.

    Hello, I'm new to this group. Looking forward to see you guys!

    February 1, 2013

  • Jessica

    This was fun last year, which was impressive considering I was practically dying of a broken heart at the time. This year should be even more fun!

    2 · February 1, 2013

    • Brittany C

      Liking the fun time part, not the broken heart. But yeah, I think we'll all enjoy it even better this year!
