Punk Rock Karaoke invites you to sing along to Bikini Kill and Jawbreaker for a good cause

Rebel girls and rude boys, this one's for you: tonight's Punk Rock Karaoke invites everyone to sing along with his or her favorite songs for a good cause, as the Denver Health Collective hosts a traveling repertoire of punk hits. The karaoke project makes its first stop in Denver -- which also acts as a benefit for the Collective -- bringing with it a 500-plus song catalog of songs by Fugazi, Bratmobile, The Clash and more.

In advance of the gathering tonight, June 20, co-organizer Patrick Tyrrell spoke with Westword about the Punk Rock Karaoke Collective's formation, the importance of collaborating with grassroots organizations and why he geeks out over seeing Bikini Kill and Jawbreaker duke it out for the most requested karaoke spot.
