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…

Kid Sister @ Speakeasy: SXSW 2009

Posted by scottstead on Mar 23, 2009 in Music, SXSW, Travel
@FierceKitty plucked Jonny Goldstein and I from our hotel room to escort her to the Speakeasy for a show featuring Datarock and Kid Sister. I didn’t know what to expect as I hadn’t heard either, but Kid Sister blew the top off the place. A breif interlude of Jump Around (it was Saint Patty’s Day) got the croud rowled up which led to this. This is her hit “Pro Nails”. She’s a lot of fun and full of energy I highly recommend checking her out.

The Cogaoke contest was on. Jonny and I adorned our wigs and socks. The lights came up and keyboard man brought his A game. Ladies and gentlemen these are just a few of the fabulous contestants that took the stage and shined that evening. Jonny and I came in a humble second place. Enjoy performers such as Christine Major, Aaron Brazell, Jonathan Finnegan, Scott Stead, and Jonny Goldstein.

SXSW Cogaoke: Vote For Me!

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!

Taxi Cab Confessions w/ Irina Slutsky @ SXSW 2008

Posted by scottstead on Mar 13, 2008 in Bloggers, Life, Partay, SXSW, Vlog

Jonny Goldstein, GerryT, and I got into a car with a stranger. That stranger – was Irina Slutsky. Irina, as usual did things a little different; in her words “you bring the mountain to Mohammed.” And that’s just what the folks at the festival did. They came in droves for a drive, but at what cost? A confession. These are our confessions. Enjoy!
