The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

I Sense an Epic Battle

LEISURE (UK)


Saturday, January 28th ::

Do you remember the first time? Come to LEISURE to hear classic brit pop. 90's indie rock, baggy anthems and twee jams.
Brit pop karaoke in the back room!!
At ANNIE'S SOCIAL CLUB (formerly the CHERRY BAR)
917 Folsom Street at 5th
21+ with I.D.
$5 cover charge, from 10 PM to 2 AM

I expect a full-on, knock-down-drag-out karaoke battle between PopRen and PinkoPunko.

Also, those who fail to attend: cobags all around.

that could be arranged...

I thought that was required for karaoke?

I have trying to get to Leisure for a year now, but no cobaggos will go with me. OK, we're going and that is that. Geenie C will be FORCED to go.

I will be in seclusion practicing my moves until then

yeah, we were hoping to meet geenie cola at the gig.

we should be 100% indie and get drunk in the alley before we go in.

Yea, it's Saturday night...NO EXCUSES

This might actually be the time to rent a hotel room for passing out?

 
At 1/17/2006 2:57 PM, Blogger Chuckles said...

Who's going to pass out on whom?

 
At 1/17/2006 2:58 PM, Blogger Pinko Punko said...

yeah, let's get a little priceline/hotwire thing- should be el cheapo.

 
At 1/17/2006 5:02 PM, Blogger fulsome said...

Hotwire is saying 2 person, 3 star room is $62. I am guessing it'd be the two couples that would want to crash? I am only a "sobering up" walk from my apt but, as PP can vouch, I don't know that it (un)comfortably sleeps 5.

I cannot come. I would be a cobag -- if Prada made cobags.

 
At 1/17/2006 11:39 PM, Blogger Pinko Punko said...

Teh, you'd be a Dolce and Gabbana cobag- the worst possible kind. I'm talking to Ginaroni- she's gotta be in- I think hotel is a good option. Gina already told me she refuses to even set a tiny toe into Fulsome's place. I don't know why, it is immaculate.

Now I want to decide what songs to do...

I don't want to get hosed and miss Wrote For Luck on the dance floor while listening to some cobag do Wonderwall.

My early thoughts:

Parklife-Blue
Any Smiths song
WFL, Kinky Afro, Step On-Happy Mondays

what else? Any requests for Pinko Idol?

 
At 1/18/2006 7:04 AM, Blogger Chuckles said...

Karma Chameleon. I would love to get a duet of that featuring teh and fulsome.

Failing that, Afternoon Delight with Pinko and some little girl. Like his niece or something.

I don't know, he could totally pull off Gloria Gaynor's, I Will Survive. He could also sing with teh Girls Just Wanna Have Fun with the blue eye shadow and all.

I am so bummed I cannot go. Can you do it in March when I am in town?

 
At 1/18/2006 10:30 AM, Blogger Chuckles said...

Are you going to be in DC or SF in March?

 
At 1/18/2006 11:35 AM, Blogger fulsome said...

Wow, ok, Parklife might actually get me to step up to the microphone. Also consider Magic America. Fuck, I just realized that Blur may be my karaoke downfall.

Pulp?
Suede?
The Stone Roses?

This is going to be painful

 
At 1/18/2006 12:05 PM, Blogger pop renaissance said...

pulp: i could do a song or two.

suede: i would rock suede. we used to cover "animal nitrate".

stone roses: i can sing 'em better than ian. mainly cos ian cannae sing.

i've never done an indie band in karaoke other than oasis. usually it's neil diamond or some 70s pop song.

i may have to see about getting the band out to party for this one.

My debut as a karaoke star was Can't Stand Losing You by The Police.

Who then arrested me and charged me with murdering their song.

I'll be in SF in March. I can go to DC anytime. I used to go every month when I had clients in Bethesda. Speaking of which, I need to find some specialists in the Georgetown area so I can get some more trips in to DC. I love staying at the Hilton and taking the shuttles in and out of Regan National.

SWEET! AG IN THA HOUSE IN 2 MONTHS!!!

oh girl. you have GOTTA hook up with me and the old lady...

 
At 1/18/2006 6:14 PM, Blogger Pinko Punko said...

AG- Leisure is the last Friday of the month- so you guys are SET!

Fulsome, maybe you should just order the Parklife karaoke CD so we have it for sure. Nothing is more Well-Rounded than brinign your own CD+G to the Show.

HA!

I would totally do Metal Mickey.

Animal Nitrate is awesome.

I would do Ocean Rain if I were drunk, also Lips Like Sugar cuz the ladies love that....

Pop, I might be up for it if you call your darling wife something more than 'the old lady'. And I want a hug when I see you and def, DEFINITE on you giving UC a big 'ole bear hug.

I have to wait and see what my friends say because I am going to see their new baby and I'm not sure what the 411 is yet.

Can we get a name for her your wife like Ms. Pop Star or something?

 
At 1/19/2006 10:19 AM, Blogger Chuckles said...

I think he should go with Clarissa Deadly. I just think some random chick name with Deadly for a last name makes for a great comic book heroine last name.

AG: the airport is called National airport because we don't kowtow to BUSH 1's stupid name for it. If you get a client like Association of American Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine in Friendship Heights, MD that would be super rad. Or whatever. I know all the best places in DC for a quick alcohol fueled jaunt. I even know some synagogues.

 
At 1/21/2006 9:39 PM, Blogger Adorable Girlfriend said...

It would most likely be Georgetown Medical or Walter Reed. Perhaps some NIH work. Either way, I will have a car and can easily get around. Don't worry, I will look you up the next time I am in DC.
