Put the Care in Karaoke Idol (or Something Like That)

The new bi-monthly event, Karaoke Idol, part game show part charity work, is back this Thursday August 23. Each event benefits a different local not-for-profit. This month's candidates include; Dill Pickle Co-op, Homeroom
Switchback Books, Girls Rock! Chicago, and Chicago Writers House. Much like that show on Fox where people sing and get judged (not sure the name of that series), each organization will have a designated member sing and battle to determine who will win the whole ball of wax.

The night begins with an hour of open Karaoke for all, so come sign up early. Then on to the battle to select which organization the night will benefit. The audience gets to vote, so they need you there to do your best Paula or Simon impressions (those are the hosts to that show I couldn't remember).

The musical library of karaoke favorites is brought to you by Shameless Karaoke. Brought to you by the folks at Curbside Splendor Publishing, Another Chicago Magazine, & Quimby's Bookstore.

Stop by the Beauty Bar 1444 W. Chicago Ave. at 8pm, $5 cover, must be 21 to enter.
