*Three Imaginary Girls' Buttrock vs. New Wave Rockstar Karaoke Holiday Bash*

Kick off the holiday season imaginarily with Motley Crüe, Missing Persons, and mistletoe! December 2, 2004 at Chop Suey

We all know that nothing says 'Happy Holidays' like Bon Jovi and Big Country. So, we've rolled them all together and on Thursday, December 2nd, Three Imaginary Girls will present the Buttrock vs. New Wave Rockstar Karaoke Holiday Bash at Chop Suey!

The night will feature rockstar performances by local musicians and celebrities singing their favorite Buttrock or New Wave song. Rockstar performers include members of…

  • Aqueduct
  • American School of Warsaw
  • Argo
  • The Catch
  • The Divorce
  • Dolour
  • Dorkweed
  • The Fastbacks
  • The Femurs
  • The Fitness
  • Harvey Danger
  • Hypatia Lake
  • Iron Composer
  • The Jeunes
  • Kane Hodder
  • Lila
  • Graig Markel
  • The Ruby Doe
  • Megan Seling of the Stranger
  • The Senate Arcade

Of course — in imaginary style — you won't need mistletoe to get lucky. The event will feature dangerous drink specials, John Roderick of the Long Winters as Santa Claus, and a raffle {with prizes from Sonic Boom Records, Vain, Nice Promotions, YUM YUM Records, Jade Tree Records and more!}.

Steve the Karaoke King (of Twilight Exit, Molly McGuires, and the Comet Tavern fame) will serve as KJ for the big event, which means the song selection and the sound system will both be incredible. Need further incentive? Imaginary Karaoke parties always tend to attract surprise guests, including Vendetta Red's Zach Davidson, the Posies' Jon Auer, and the Vells' Tristian Marcum. Merry Christmas to you, indie-music fan!
