Swap Meet


Piracy – Karaoke – Conviviality
Saturday, April 25, 2009
10pm until late

Hey, so how about that Pirate Bay verdict, huh? Art pranksters get a year of hard Swedish jail time and maybe a seat in the European parliament. BOOM! Suddenly “underground” music swapping is all the rage! It’s like, rebellious and artsy! It’s like, relational aesthetics! Dude! They’re even doing it in Brooklyn!!

Looks like you’d better get your ass to Swap Meet before Oprah ruins it.

And while you’re at it, why not bring a flash drive full of your favorite hard-to-find music? When we started this whole swapping thing, flash drives were rare exotic playthings of elite technorati. But now they’re two bucks at the gas station, so no more excuses! Come on! Bring the noise!

Also, bring your Karaoke Sparkle Magic.

And also, the love. Definitely bring that too.

What Is It?

Swap Meet is monthly celebration of the cultural commons organized by The Royal Academy of Nuts+Bolts and Superbunker. We have a poorly-organized music exchange, enthusiastically amateur karaoke, and an overall Betalevel open house with snacks and drinks for all.

What to Bring?

  • bring: your singin’ voice and dancin’ shoes (optional)
  • bring: some storage media and/or some music filez and/or your personal music device of choice (optional)
  • bring: drinks, snacks, or a kindly donation (optional)
  • bring: a defiant sense of joy in the face of our eroding cultural freedoms (required)

What to Sing?

Here’s the house karaoke list.
