Last Night Was Shaking (and Pretty Loud)
Last night, I sang "Rock You Like a Hurricane" in the middle of a crowded bar.
I am not ashamed.
There's not as much karaoke in Washington as I'd expect, so any new singalong event is welcome. But the Reef's new "Glam Metal Karaoke" night takes it to another level. Expect an evening of Ratt, Warrant, Tesla, Guns N' Roses, Faster Pussycat, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, Black Sabbath, the Scorpions, Lita Ford and Poison (poorly represented by the mediocre power ballad "Every Rose Has Its Thorn). Throw in $2 pints of Miller High Life and $5 Grey Goose Vodka drinks, and Glam Metal Karaoke sounds like a winner.
(Non-headbangers are welcome, too; more than 2,000 songs are listed in the looseleaf binders, including the usual assortment of Duran Duran, Madonna and C&C Music Factory.)
Until recently, Tuesday nights were the domain of DJs Eurok and Orbit122. But when they took their funky mix of house, Latin, hip-hop and soul to Wonderland, the Reef needed to do something to fill the ground-level Lush bar. Judging by last night's crowd, they've succeeded. Arrive early to sign up for songs; the list fills fast and no repeats are allowed.
