    Emo karaoke with a full backing live band this Saturday at the Moroccan Lounge near downtown. Anyone interested?

    Oh man, that's the kind of thing that could get a chorus meetup going WILD

    I think it's weekly or fortnightly. I would be at this but I'm away until the 28th

    oh its fortnightly but the emo version seems to be once a month. they rotate between 80s / 90s / "emo"

    I've been before and it's a ton of fun. It combines the camaraderie and nostalgia of Emo Nites (without the whole club atmosphere) with the fun of attending a show. People dance and sing along. Getting up on stage and singing is a huge joy for anyone who used to be in a band and wants that feeling back for a few minutes (plus, this time the crowd knows the words... unlike any band I sang in).

    The next one is October 26th at Lucky Strike bowling at LA Live. If anyone wants to go this week or to the one next month let me know. If it's a weekend night I'm down.

  10. I'll try to make it one of these times. I don't technically live in the LA area, but I'm close enough that I'm there pretty often.

    This is even funnier when you consider that I'd gotten off the Red Line at 7th instead of Pershing Square, the latter of which is closer to Grand Central Market (both stations are equidistant from the venue). So, like a big dummy, I walked from 7th & Flower to the venue, then to Grand Central Market, then back to the venue.

    anyway
    My phone died in the pouch I had to put it in at the show. I think I left the screen on. I'm shitty with directions without my phone; I turned the wrong way on 7th on the way back and was lost for like three blocks. Also, I noticed I'd written Grand Central Station instead of Grand Central Market in my previous post. I'm native to LA, I swear.

    They were out of Nutmeg and Chia!! Gotta get it next time I'm around.

    If anyone is looking for a ticket to Menzingers/Tigers Jaw at the regent 11/10, I have an extra I'm trying to get rid of.
     
  19. Anyone interested in last minute angels tickets tonight in Anaheim? 2 tickets for $75. I may end up going but my son is sick so weighing my options.

    If anyone has a spare ticket for the Saves the Day shows in Anaheim or LA in November I'd gladly take it off of your hands. I was on the fence about these shows, and they sold out before I could get one. Now that Vinnie Caruana is opening at both of these shows after his LA date was cancelled, I'm kicking myself for not getting a ticket.
