Tonight at the Supreme Court Cafe and Nightclub, 1550 Court Place, forget John Lennon and think John McCain. At Karaoke Convention 08, part of a week-long project by artist Daniel Peltz for Dialog:City, you wont find Faith or Papa Dont Preach on the playlist. Keeping in the spirit of the Democratic National Convention, VJs from Alien Entertainment will translate a dozen bipartisan speeches into karaoke format.
e than just an amusing night of entertainment, this is your chance to channel your favorite political winners or losers and deliver their speeches as you see fit. Should Hillary have conceded in a chipmunk voice? Should McCain have accepted the nomination with a little more pizzazz? You decide. Special guest performances by Mayor John Hickenlooper, Congressman Mark Udall, state senator Joan Fitz-Gerald and Ray Rivera, state director for the Obama campaign, will complete tonights launch for the project, which continues at various karaoke venues throughout the week.
The fun starts at 8 p.m.; admission is free. For details, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.karaokeconvention.com.
