Now Age Karaoke

On 11/11/11, for their third and final installment of their artist residency, Prince Rama will herald in the end of the world by way of karaoke. Using the number one hit singles corresponding with the dates of eleven different predicted "apocalypses" such as Heavens Gate, Jonestown, and Y2K, they will "chop and screw" the songs to a point beyond recognition and invite anyone who wishes to participate to perform the resulting pieces. -[Issue Project Room]
Congrats to Prince Rama, who celebrated 11/11/11 (National Metal Day to some) at Issue Project Room with one of the only events to successfully merge Jim Jones, fresh pairs of Nikes, Screw Music and everyone's favorite sake-fueled past-time into a single event. Songs like Britney Spears' "Til The World Ends", Faith Hill's "Breathe", and The Bee Gees' "Stayin Alive" help keep the apocalyptic theme running.

Prince Rama kicked off a tour with Indian Jewelry one day later (on 11/12) at Cameo in Brooklyn. Prince Rama play Brooklyn again at Glasslands on February 23rd, though knowing them they'll play before then too. Before then they'll also visit Australia and many other places.

All tour dates, more pictures from possibly the world's first apolayptic karaoke party, and the band's new video for "Golden Silence", below...

That guy was actually drawing the entire time. It was one busy sketch taking up the entire two pages. Yup.

Some "Anonymous" folks need a hug. It's ok to take risks and think outside the box. Courage--just pouring out negative vibes doesn't make you safe, or happy.

Yo Anonymous! We had so much fun, hope you can make it next time :) :)

Oh, Anon, How silly you are. "Lesbian Karaoke Jam." Because they are female and close you assume things and voice those thoughts because of what I'm now assuming (because of the blatant display of bias toward women that love each other) is a discomfort by seeing woman happy without a man next to them. I went to school with these girls. Taraka and Nimai are beautiful people that happen to be SISTERS that are a year or two apart. Without listening to or being at this performance I can honestly say, Just their company and their joy are enough to create memories.
