Who's your daddy?


It has come to our attention that there is now at least one other Cruising Karaoke party in Berlin! And not only this, but an article published in BONER magazine about the Gayhole has also led to disussions in Norway and Sweden of introducing our sleazy concept to Karaoke establishments there. This conjures up many feelings in your blogger, who happens to be the founder of the Darkroom Karaoke concept. The first feeling is flattery, followed by a feeling of "Why didn't I get a patent on that shit?!" 

Incidentally, Daisuke Inoue (aka GOD) - the Founding Father of Karaoke - also neglected to get a patent for the Karaoke Box,  which led him later to get a patent for a pesticide he invented, which repelled insects and rats that posed a threat to the delicate electronics of karaoke machines (luckily, we don't have this problem in Ronsons!)

And so it is in the selfless spirit of Daisuke that I forfeit proprietary rights to the noble communion of karaoke and felatio, and set my sordid baby off into the the greater city, into Scandinavia and beyond, because after all: musik ist für alle da, sharing is caring, and - as is the rule of darkroom karaoke boxes - the more the merrier! 

So run free, little gayhole! But remember one thing - when you're feeling lost and exploited in some cold, Nordic dive-bar where they're charging 15 euros at the door - you can always follow the sound of my voice, saying: "Who's your daddy?"

V DAY!


V by  Joseph Wolfgang Ohlert

Spring is in the air in Berlin. The birds are chirping away in a mad orgy in the prematurely blossoming treetops. Sunlight floods through bedroom windows onto the naked bodies of young couples sleeping in and cuddling on lazy Sunday afternoons.  It's the perfect backdrop for Cupid to soar over a rainbow and shoot his bow into dumbfounded hearts, bringing together two complete strangers, and out of the isolating void of the city to bring forth something new: love. And what a better occasion for this culmination of all things warm and fuzzy than Valentine's Day?

Well, fuck that shit. There's nothing worse than being broken-hearted, cynical or just straight up lonely on this Hallmark, Godiva and De Beers-generated conspiracy disguised as a holiday. Cos if you look a bit closer at that sugar-coated romantic scene, you'll notice that the unicorns have flies all over their eyes, that Cupid has a malicious grin as he was actually aiming for your jugular, those young lovers in bed? One of them just contracted crabs.... and the rainbows, well, that's just the effect of light refracted through hydrogen molecules, babes. Sorry to bust your big, pink, fluffy bubble!

But that's ok. There's a place to hide and escape all of that putrid marzipan and poo-smelling roses. We're turning Valentine's day into V-DAY. This Thursday at Gayhole, we're giving the finger to Spießigkeit at the ANTI-VALENTINES PARTY: A Macabre Valentine's party for broken hearts and sinister lovers. Dating games, darkroom & dancefloor karaoke, heartbreak and polyamory!

Hosting the party and guiding us into sin is Berlin based dark pop supernova V. V is a hypnotising BLACK POP explosion of dark synthwave influenced by punk, pop and black metal. On the decks V will DJ a variety of rare german synth punk, no-wave, mainstream feelgood pop dance music and other obscure delicacies with an emphasis on female artists on vinyl and mp3.

DONNERSTAG 13.2.14 -- ANTI-VALENTINES PARTY @ GAYHOLE w/ V ab 22 Uhr

MAKE SOME NOISE!




Meet Billy. Billy grew up in some mega-conservative, backwater, cesspool of religious fundamentalism and heteronormativity. Queer, anxious and so shy that he hides from his own shadow, the odds were stacked against him in many respects, but most of all in his dream of being a rockstar.

For conciseness' sake, we'll fast-forward many years, countless obstacles and nervous breakdowns later to the moment when Billy - after narrowly evading death by means of social darwinism - arrived in Berlin, a city whose bright, colorful, neon "Freaks, Geeks and Misfits Welcome" sign had beckoned him for years and years.

His first night on the town, he swallowed the lump in his throat that insisted he turn around and return to the safety and comfort of his bed. He answered that persistent doubt with a shot of tequila at a bar around the corner from his apartment, where he met Alex. After probing the shy newcomer for some time, Alex learned of his rockstar aspirations, and insisted he follow him to to a place called "Monster Ronsons" (gulp).

A few hours and several shots of tequila later, Alex had convinced Billy to put his name in for a song. His hand trembled as he handed the paper to the drag queen at the mixer. And for an excruciating hour, he waited, and waited, and sweat, and waited. Rednecks and bullies from his backwater hometown popped into his mind, shouting their convictions that he's never going to make it. And just when he thought he was going to pass out: he heard the drag queen say "Billy!"

He would hardly remember the next few minutes while he sang "Give me one moment in time." He was overcome with a euphoric rush - that karaoke kick - and was sure that Whitney's ghost was there, holding him upright so he didn't collapse. Flashing lights, blurred silhouettes of people in the crowd, sweat, music, and some words on a screen. And the music. The music, and a microphone. And the music stopped. And the monitor went black. The song was over, and nothing.... no one made a sound. And as he returned to his seat, no one made a sound. If you had asked why, they would have said they were waiting to see if they'd be called up next.

Billy went on to become a rockstar anyway and signed a multimillion dollar contract with Island Records, but that's besides the point. The point is remember to always MAKE SOME NOISE... you never know who's really on that stage. Could be, they've waited a lifetime...
