KaraokeJournal: two sings, one week

Part 1: SPX, on Saturday night. 30 cartoonists (and me) crammed into a relatively tiny room. Lots of very loud singalongs--I only stepped up for a mic spot twice, and did my old standby "Kiss" and R. Kelly's "Ignition" (had hoped it would actually be "Ignition Remix," but no such luck). Most fun vocal moment of the night was probably standing at the back of the room with Sarah O. when somebody did "Billie Jean," and singing the back-and-forth "don't think twice! don't think twice!" bit.

Part 2: Sing Sing on St. Mark's, Tuesday night. Went there with Laura H. and some other friends, but the place was dead, dead, dead--in the course of two hours, I ended up doing nine songs, mostly things I'd done before elsewhere. Only addition to my repertoire: Squeeze's "Up the Junction" (decent but unthrilling--too bad they don't have "Hourglass" or "Slap and Tickle" or for that matter "Take Me I'm Yours"). Most fun song to sing: "Does Your Mother Know" (mostly because Valery joined in on the girly lines). Best received: "Fuck and Run." Most impressive performance of the night: Kiel Phegley doing Clarence Carter's "Strokin'."
