SXSW Cogaoke 2010: Stay Awesome, Vote Awesome

Posted by scottstead on Feb 23, 2010 in Karaoke, SXSW

What you are looking at to your immediate left are the results of last year’s 2009 Cogaoke online contest. You voted and I left everything I had on the stage, along with my former Jonny’s Partay cohort Jonny Goldstein, now of Envizualize. Jonny and I finished huge with our rendition of the Red Hot Chili Peppers “Give It Away”, complete with hand stands, keytars, and umm…socks, yes, socks. You get the idea. We brought home the silver with a solid second place (we’re pretty sure it was fixed). This year I and David Hale, known by many as Twitter’s @lostonroute66, will be pulling off a karaoke feat that no other dare attempt – trying to nail the cogaoke-triple-mc-half-spring-vocal-twist (which shall remain a big surprise until then). You can assure a killer performance this year (and the possible appearance of special guests) by voting for us every day for the next 6 days. With this vote you are guaranteeing the continuation of karaoke-awesome-ocity, the betterment of mankind, and longer lives for babies, puppies, and kittens everywhere. So, gear up, get ready and head your browsers on over to our page at the Ok Cogaoke voting battle grounds HERE and give us your vote (in as many browsers, at as many locations as you can whip up). Because you have to know by now that…

Aaron Brazell and Jusin Herman throw down the gauntlet when Aaron insists on singing Justin’s trademark, “Rebel Yell”. Ladies and gentlemen it’s a Billy Idol Off. R.J. aka DJ Blue Eyes joins us with the best-damn-karaoke-book in town for this issue of TechKaroke DC: Capitol Hill Edition at 18th Ammendment.

Thanks to Vicky for setting this up – and a huge thanks to Justin Herman for picking up the tab. I owe you pal.

We Three Kings of Karaoke: Videoblogging Week 2009 Day 6

Posted by scottstead on Apr 13, 2009 in DC Social Media, Karaoke, Vlog
In this special edition of TechKaraoke DC Aaron Brazell, Brett Petersel, and Chris Abraham tear it up at Sticky Rice, in Washington, D.C., thus the title. This was a special evening because we got to see Chris Abraham perform for the very first time, ever. That’s right, karaoke virginity lost. Not only did he excel at a song that would make most men quiver in fear at the high notes in the chorus, but he stole the hearts and minds of everyone in the audience with his performance. Rock n’ roll friends, rock n’ roll.

Posted by scottstead on Feb 27, 2009 in Karaoke, SXSW, Vlog
Keep Me On Top

Yo, so check it. TechKaraoke DC has been taking off like a flaming-out-of-control-rocket-with-its-after-burners-on. We had a two, count them, two great events at Recessions and Sticky Rice, and were even graced by the presence of the co-founder of TechKaraoke International, Brett Petersel (also of Mashable fame).
The latest news is that I am pushing really hard to get into the top 20 of the Cogaoke online portion of their Karaoke Contest, which will be happening in front of 300 awesome people at SXSW. So what am I asking of you?

Vote Early and Often

That’s right vote for me. Vote for me once. Vote for me twice. Vote for me 500 times. And I promise that I will do my best to represent. Let me know if you’re supporting me and I’ll give you a shout out on stage, “I’d like to thank the academy…”. I also promise that I will do my best to end hunger, hug puppies more, learn to play bridge, and stop juggling kittens. Love me. Vote for me. Because you know I’d do the same for you. Stay tuned for videos from this months TechKaraoke DC! Here’s a little unedited tease of what’s to come. Heyoh! It’s @Brett! It’s me! It’s Sticky. And to be completely fair – vote for Brett too! After all, TechKaraoke came from his loins!

TechKaraokeDC January Edition

Posted by scottstead on Jan 29, 2009 in Bloggers, DC Social Media, Karaoke, Vlog
Aaron, Justin, and I headed out for the first unofficial meetup of TechKaraokeDC at Recessions near Dupont in Washington, DC for an evening of vocal debauchery.  It was fun, it was silly, and quite frankly…”I don’t even know if I have XuXu’s pedals in my pocket anymore.”  Thank you Justin for that fine quote. Thank you all for showing up. And a huge thanks goes out to Jane for filming the absolutely most ridiculous rendition of Baby Got Back ever.
