You wanna talk about a match made in holiday heaven? This is it. Seriously, what goes better with the holiday season than getting absolutely plastered? And what goes better with getting tanked than karaoke? Incidentally, what goes better with wintertime karaoke than holiday songs? And finally, what goes better with singing holiday songs than getting utterly loaded? You see, it's an endless circle of inebriated depravity, to be celebrated and witnessed by some of the cream of Nashville's old-school rock-dude crop. Heading up Karaoke. Again. Forever. will be Apollo Up! and Gentlemen Divers member — and lovable, quintessential Nashville rock dude — Mike Shepherd, who promises a catalog of nearly 10,000 karaoke tunes to choose from, roughly 100 of them "Christmas jams." He's got the karaoke standards, like "lots of old country, '80s pop, R&B hits, guilty pleasures and old-school rap," not to mention more refined, rock-dude karaoke fodder, such as "The Smiths, XTC, 10cc, Depeche Mode, Thin Lizzy and Scott Walker." Sure, loads of people will be off visiting their families by tonight — that takes care of the riffraff — so the rest of us locals will have plenty of room to get absolutely twisted and embarrass ourselves in front of one another. If such a thing is even possible anymore.
