Here's another page we can keep updated :)

Relevant Communities
1st_learnmusic: Community dedicated to those "</span>who are interested in learning or teaching music!"

you_sing_it: Post yourself singing karaoke using
www.yousendit.com.  Small comm but might be a great place
                               to get (or give) more than just local feedback on technique, song choice, style, etc :)

singersclub: A comm for singers in general.  No set profile.

karaoketv: Not sure.  Profile says "You make karaoke wishes and I grant them."   Apparently you tell this guy what to
                            sing, and he does it on streaming video live.

karaokeclub: Asian Karaoke only.

Master List of Karaoke Places?
So, you know what would be cool? A big effin' list of places that do karaoke, and what nights they do it! :D

Me and my buddies are kind of sampling various places, and it kind of sucks to go out to a given bar and hear that they don't do karaoke anymore, or they do it on a different night, etc. Some places don't advertise so well, so it'd be good to know what's out there that we haven't discovered yet.

So, Neighbor's is now closed. No more karaoke there, so sad :(

I am suprised that nothing was said about it being the last night last Monday. But oh well. Hopefully they reopen somewhere else soon. I have rather enjoyed my few times at Neighbors!

And now time to find another place. I do like "Caught in the Act" productions with Jared. :)

Only a couple more chances before Neighbor's closes!

Karaoke at Neighbor's
I had a great time at Karaoke with genaruthp!
There were maybe... MAYBE 10 other people at Neighbor's, and only 4 others were singing. TOO COOL!

Here are Gena's posts.
She did :

The Trouble with Love, by Kelly Clarkson

Girl from the Gutter, by Kina

and When the Lights go Down, by Faith Hill

I did:
Don't Cry for me Argentina, by Madonna

Sunday Morning, by Maroon5

and Right Hand Man by Joan Osborne

She has them locked, you can hear if you've got her friended ;)

Then we did a duet, Picture by Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock. It was so much fun!!!

What is your favorite karaoke memory or experience?

Neighbor's Closing
Email forward received from Lydia, who does karaoke at Neighbor's:

Hi to My singers (at least those I have addresses for),

I wanted you to know that Neighbors building has been sold, so as of
Feb. 28th Neighbors will no longer be at it's current location. They
are actively looking for a new location, but suspect that they won't
have anything before April (or possibly later) . I hope people will come
in for the Mondays in Feb., since I don't know when (or where) Karaoke
will start up again. I only had a few addresses to send this out to,
so please forward it to any singers out there you know that are
regulars. Hope to see you soon !

Love and Hugs

Karaoke Listing
This can also be found at the bottom of the "music" page on eugeneweekly.com, but here are the different bars that host karaoke around town. As you can see, there are multiple options every night of the week:

Thursday: The Cooler, Duck Inn, Bada Bing's (earlier in the evening, at 6pm...not sure if this is every week)

Friday: Sher's Eldorado, Trackstirs

Saturday: Duck Inn, Lone Star

Sunday: Black Forest, Country Side, Downtown Lounge

Monday: Black Forest, Country Side, Jogger's, Rock 'N' Rodeo, Neighbors (not listed in the Eugene Weekly)

Tuesday: Country Side, Quackers, Taylors, The O Bar (although I had a bad experience there)

Wednesday: Charlie Mac's, Fathoms, Sher's Eldorado

I haven't been to all of these, but I most enjoyed the Black Forest, the Duck Inn and Neighbors (although I only karaoked there once). I've also heard the Downtown Lounge is good. As I said, I had a bad experience at The O Bar, although it had nothing to do with the DJ (he rocked). It had more to do with the bartender being rude to us. But that was several months ago, so who knows.

There's also a listing on the Eugene Weekly music page for Corvallis.

Go and enjoy!

Karaoke funnies!
Karaoke funnies!Collapse )

I found an article in the Emerald from 10/26/05 about Karaoke in Eugene, had a list of a few places with dates and times.

A few, as quoted:

At the Red Lion Hotel, 205 Coburg Road, karaoke is held weekly on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. in the lounge. Dan Henson, of Dan Henson’s Classic Karaoke, is booked four nights in a row.

At the Black Forest, located at 50 E. 11th Ave., Jared Ritzer puts on a compilation that ranges from old standards, courtesy of Sinatra, to new radio spins by modern-day divas. On Sunday and Monday, beginning at around 9 p.m. and concluding around 2 a.m., “scary-oke,” as one of the bartenders has taken to calling it, fills the air.
