It’s called Karaoke 4 A Cause. I’d love to tell you everybody involved but I honestly don’t even know everybody involved. But whoever they are, they know what they’re doing.
From the website:
Â We laugh, sometimes flirtatiously, sometimes loudly.
We drink, and more than enough to make the bartender happy.
We dance, thanks largely to the efforts of Mr. Hollywood DJ, the official Sixers DJ, visiting us from Philadelphia and DJ Profitt , DCâ€™s premier karaoke DJ.
But most importantly,Â we give.
Because we know weâ€™re here to do more than laugh, drink, sing, and dance. Wonâ€™t you join us? We promise itâ€™s the most fun youâ€™ll have this holiday season, and that youâ€™ll share that joy with someone who needs it more than you can imagine.
Basically, come out, bring a toy or a $20 donation, and get your karaoke on! I’ll be there and I can’t wait. It was such a good event last year that I’m sure this year will be even better and bring in even more toys for kids who need them during this Christmas season! See you all there! Peep the video from last year’s event!
It’s the most wonderful time…of the year. And what better way to spend that time than to start the month of December out with some old school, feel good hiphop and R&B?
That’s right. This Saturday, December 1, 2012, REMINISCE invades your clubwaves for the holiday edition! You know the drill already. Free before 11pm with RSVP (http://reminiscedc.eventbrite.com), OPEN BAR from 930-1030pm and NO DRESS CODE.
We’re also planning to do a toydrive, and I’ll have more details in the next day or so.
With Supa Qool DJ Quartermaine on the 1′s and 2′s you know its the best way to start off your December. Ho ho ho…
Speaking of Supa Qool DJ Quartermaine, our resident REMINISCE DJ, he just released his EP, Quarter Life Crisis, on iTunes. It’s a dope blend of old school hip-hop feel with on point lyricism. The production knocks, the topics matter, and the emcee doesn’t disappoint. If you are missing that real sh*t, sh*t to make you feel sh*t, bump you in the club sh*t, have you wildin’ out hip-hop…get thee to iTunes and cop Quarter Life Crisis. Best yet it’s only $3.99. Cop that!
