Another Night of Karaoke

Went to Grand Station with Candace, Eric, Jamie, Dory, Heather, and others. I sang "Smooth" by Carlos Santana and Rob Thomas. I also sang "Every Morning" by Sugar Ray. We did a conga line when the karaoke DJ, Nancy, performed "C'mon Shake Your Body (Do the Conga)" by Miami Sound Machine. There was lots of other drunken revelry. Not by me, I'm too square. It was interesting to watch, though. Boy, that Jamie is an amusing drunk. These two guys also performed "Man of Constant Sorrow" from Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou? They rocked.

Tonight, I have rehearsal for Waltzing in Memphis (the political satire of the year), and afterwards I plan to support hip-hop group Poisonous Dialects in their show. Here are the details:

Poisonous Dialects ( have a hip-hop show TONIGHT March 23 at the Hi-Tone on Poplar. The admission is $5.oo and the showtime is I believe 10 PM. Other acts include, Seance, Jaec the Wreckuh, Cosmo, and the Tru-Head B-Boy Camp (that's breakers, ladies and gents)

Plug Time!!!
