Karaoke Stars at the Lucky Cat

Most of you guys missed it, but it was great anyway: Joe McGinty's Piano Parlour develops into the tuesday night hot spot in Williamsburg. Last nights performances by Erik Paparozzi (beatlesque, folky pop tunes) and Nikko Weidemann (german/english heartbreak pop) confirmed this. For some of the songs, Nikko was accompained by the great Don Piper (www.adonpipersituation.com) on lap steel and by accordeonist Cassis (www.b-blush.com).
The party really got going when Joe opened his weekly piano karaoke and accomplished singers such as Kristofer of Morex Optimo or Kerry Kennedy of the Blue Sparks started belting out classics. A Hurray also for the two girls who did "Sitting at the dock of the Bay". Guts, people, that's all it takes.

I thought "You're so vain" by Erik and the mysterious girl was fantastic! So was Echo and the Bunnymen's "Killing Moon". Gosh, I love that song!

Erik solo, first. Then, for the Karaoke, he did two duets with a girl whom I think is in the band...but Ive only seen them once and Im not sure...
