Mark yr calendars, all & sundry -- Saturday, July 26th will see the cataclysmic return of The Skyline Network's Hootenanny, rechristened the Twotenanny this time around. Once again The Mink Backroom will play host to a slew of H-town's best & brightest as they live out their totally un-ironic rockstar karaoke dreams. (I mean, c'mon -- any guy who's ever picked up a guitar and actually tried to do more w/it than pound out a few power-chords has at least once in their life fantasized about being Alex Lifeson. Anybody who says otherwise is lying out their ass.)
Here's the current lineup:
No idea as to the schedule, but y'know what? It doesn't matter, not a bit. Just show up, hang out, and grin like an idiot to local yer indie-rocker/punker buddies bash out songs like "King of Pain" (um, please?), "Ring of Fire" (well, duh), or "Do You Think I'm Sexy?" (whoo, boy...). Caveat: Yes, I am totally guessing at what songs these good people will be playing. And again: it doesn't matter. Just go. I went last year and was over the moon to witness Panic in Detroit's note-perfect impersonation of Jawbox and The Jonx living out Danny's dream of being NoMeansNo. It was beautiful, truly.
Not sure how much this thing'll cost, either, but odds are that it'll be cheap, cheap, cheap, 'cause that's how these guys (organizers ADR & Ben Murphy, specifically) roll. Oh, and if you're still undecided, here's the "laugh so hard your coworkers will wonder why you didn't forward them the joke, too" ad:
