Event Description: http://www.encorekaraokesf.com/encore.gif
Encore just got 50 THOUSAND new songs, and have not yet updated their play list. Basically, ask for a song, and they probably have it.
They started doing Karaoke on Sundays (starting at 4pm), so I think we should check it out.
Some tips: If you are a first-timer (or not), check out http://www.ksolo.com
. It is an excelent way to practice and build up confidence before getting up there. Check out their old list of songs online http://www.encorekaraokesf.com/)
, and pick out at least one song before coming, so you'll be sure to sing (and again if it is not on the list, then they probably have it, you can ask when you get there). They key is not to think too much. Don't debate in your head if it's a good choice or not. Just decide and go with it. Fear is only a figment of your imagination.
Also, if you aren't going to sing, that's cool too. We want good audience members as well for cheering, backup dancing, etc. :-)
For those who don't know, Encore is a roomy bar, with a dive bar vibe, friendly staff (bartender, KJ, etc.). You can read the reviews on Yelp (http://www.yelp.com/biz/encore-karaoke-lounge-san-francisco)
YAY for encore karaoke!! spacious, loungey 70s feeling including cheap drinks, cutie-friendly bartenders and dj, pool table (for the wusses who say they 'can't' sing), big stage (so you can sing and dance with yourself or with all your friends as back-up). huge songbooks, and each book categorizes them differently so you can find what you're searching for easily (although can be a challenge if you are indecisive).
i la-la love this place!! i recently went here with a big group of friends and we all go to sing our hearts out (well, only the brave ones). go early cause it can get crowded but even still plenty of room and attentive bartenders.
Stay Tuned for events in Feb!!
