Piracy – Karaoke – Conviviality
Saturday, July 2, 2011
10pm until late
You know how we’re always joking about how one day we’ll get a door for our bathroom? Well, folks, we are happy to report: what once was a joke is now a fact. Our bathroom, it has a door. We’re not saying this is any more reason to come down to Betalevel for Swap Meet (your bathroom at home, we wager, has a door as well), but we are saying that Betalevel is that much more classy of a place now. We have always been classy, true, but now we’re “bathroom with door” classy. Ooh la la. So, you know, maybe this Swap Meet you want to don your top hat or some pearls? Some spats or a monocle would not be totally uncalled for. You bring the fancy; we provide the classy; and we’ll all scream along together to Puttin’ on the Ritz.
Edit: we just checked our karaoke list and there is actually a shocking (shocking!) absence of Taco songs (we assume he had more than just that one). Instead, we’ll simply have to sing Rasputin. We know we have that one.
What Is It?
Swap Meet is an aperiodic 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
