My friend Adri and I have been singing karaoke together for about the past three years. We have our favorite songs, and we have our karaoke group, and we have our favorite places. But we also both sing professionally, he with his band Cabs, and I in the occasional musical theatre production or singing telegram.
Recently, a few people in the theater community have been singing cabaret nights at the Troubadour Wine Bar in Minneapolis. I attended one for my friend Bethany a while back, and chatted with Adrian (different human being altogether) who runs the programming, and ended up booking an evening! (What?!)
For our theme, we've chosen "Songs We Can't Sing at Karaoke"...meaning songs we can never find in anyone's book, or songs we know we just can't get away with there.
So...my first cabaret night (where I'm not just singing a song or two) will be Monday, October 23rd. Show starts at 8pm, free to the public. Come on down! But make sure to get there early to get a beverage and claim your seat, cuz the place is tiny!
See you on the 23rd for Cab Cabaret at the Troubadour!
