I am mostly surprised they left out Barry Dworkin the Gas Station Dogs' "Rock and Roll Dreams'll Come Through".

for anyone who was at the other indie rock karaokes, is it first come first served? do you sign up some big sheet when you get there? a random drawing kinda thing?

Aquaman is rumored to be planning another appearance under a new disguise.

No Way! I remember that from a couple years ago.... Whats the new disguise

This is the best set list for indie rock karaoke yet! If only Titus Andronicus were going to be around on that date to do "Where Eagles Dare" with Ted Leo.

Titus Andronicus what a bunch of garbage, that cover sucked when he did it!

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2008 4:23 PM


Titus Andronicus blows.

AQUAMAN!!!!!

WHo was that guy?

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2008 4:40 PM

i think the indie rock part is Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. The songs are straight karaoke style. Sort of

Posted by Me | November 24, 2008 5:40 PM

someone better record this whole damn thing and post it! 20 years of age isn't quite satisfactory for this event, ugh.

Posted by Cassie | November 24, 2008 6:11 PM

This will probably be awesome fun, but part of me wishes it was just Ted singing all those songs.
