3/29: Punk Rock Karaoke

UPDATE: Doors open at 8, and singing starts at 9.

Do you like punk bands like the Sex Pistols, the Clash, and the Ramones? How about new wave and alternative bands like Devo, the Pixies, Joy Division, and Siouxie and the Banshees?

If so, come out for Punk Rock Karaoke at the Black Cat!

This event is a benefit for the DC Books to Prison
http://dcbookstoprisoners.org/

Incidentally, I'll be cross-posting this with the Britpop Meetup group which I also organize for. :)

Tickets are $8.

    Some notes about tomorrow's Punk Rock Karaoke show:

    Doors open at 9. I don't know what time the actual karaoke starts, but I recommend getting there early to submit your song!

    Finding street parking is tough in this area, especially on a Friday. So I suggest using the garage that is on the north side of U St. between 15th and 14th. The parking charge is $10.

    If this night is anything like last year's Punk Rock Karaoke event, expect a packed and boisterous (but in a good way) room.

    Also, the song queue got so long last year that the DJ operated on an "open mic" policy - meaning that anyone was welcome to join in on anyone else's song using the second mic.

    If anyone wants to carpool from the Bethesda area, I'm game - but with the following caveats:

    1) I will be attending an improv show at 8pm downtown. So I plan to leave Bethesda around 7.

    2) I plan to close out the Punk Rock Karaoke show, which will run until 1:30.

    Sorry... I am a person of convenience... but I will stay until close if nearby

    I will be at the 8pm show of the Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament next door at the Source Theater.

    So I'll probably be at Punk Rock Karaoke around 9:30-10.

    If anyone's interested in the improv show, you can get a ticket here:
