Metaloake at Blue Frog Bar & Grill
If there’s one main drawback to karaoke (other than, you know, the complete lack of talent of those usually involved, drunken attempts at songs where the singers don’t actually know the words or being subjected to “Don’t Stop Believin’” for the umpteenth time…) it’s the distinct lack of opportunities to perform “Run to the Hills” or “In My Darkest Hour.” Twice a year, those in the know flock from all corners of the city to KJ Mary Mac’s “Metaloake” for the chance to do their best Ozzy, Lemmy or Bruce Dickinson. Warning: attempts to perform any Journey or Neil Diamond might get you stomped.
