GOOD KARAOKE KARMA!




Hey! You! Yes, YOU! I'm speaking to YOU as you read this on your laptop screen in bed, or from your iPhone screen on the U8 on your way home, or on your iPad screen on the way to a friend of a friend's birthday party that you really don't want to go to but feel like you should because last year that same friend came with you to that party you really wanted to go to but didn't want to go alone etc etc...

I'm talking to YOU because I'm sure you've done it. We all have. We've all been sitting there, drinking schnaps to relieve the tension that has been slowly building in your necks and tummies, while we're waiting for your song. Waiting. And waiting. And waiting some more. And we've all done it. We've all lost patience and committed the unspeakable crime of approaching the KJ, who obviously has his or her hands full of three hundred slips of paper and a mixer and a drink and a cigarette and a rabid bachelorette on the verge of a nervous breakdown!

And in spite of their precarious situation we have mustered up the nerve to tap him or her on the shoulder and say "WHEN IS IT MY TURN?"

Well... my dears... impatient little monsters... WAIT NO MORE! At IMPROVINYLOKE, there is NO WAITING AT ALL! This is KARAOKE WITHOUT SLIPS OF PAPER! Because while RUMPELSTIL spins the vinyls, you can just grab a microphone at will and SING YOUR THING! Of course, within reason (we don't want to Bogart that joint, if you know what I mean).

So Thursday might be your chance to begin re-charging your Karaoke Karma after all that KJ-pestering you've been up to in the wee hours of the morning at Ronson's... when 1 hour of waiting magically becomes 4. Head on over to IMPROVINYLOKE tomorrow night and SING YOUR THING, ya monster!

YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE TO THURSGAYS!


*** THE BERLIN POP CHOIR HAS BEEN CANCELLED THIS WEEK ***




"What's the deal with Thursdays in Ronson's?" Surely you've found yourself pondering this question over and over in your head at night, unable to sleep, puzzled, perplexed, curious, bi-curious? A bit turned on, perhaps? Maybe feeling a bit dirty even. Well, this week's Ronson's Rag is dedicated to the day we call Donner, and to answer the whole slew of emails and phone calls we get about Thursdays.

Q - What is this "gayhole" thing? Is it a party? Is it a crude anatomical reference? Is it just a slightly offensive and politically incorrect piece of queer propaganda?

A - Yes.


Q - Do I have to be gay to get into the club on a Thursday night?

A - No, but you might leave bi!


Q - No seriously, what happens there on a Thursday night?

A - Thursdays are a mixed bag. The gayhole actually refers to the "darkroom" - or smoking lounge - in which the three karaoke cabins are open to anyone and everyone! So you can hop from box to box, meet some new people and sing with strangers...you know, in the dark. In a hot, sweaty, cabin. Use your imagination!


Q - So what are all these other things I keep hearing about like "panty splatters" and "sisters with voices" and stuff?

A - The gayhole is like the umbrella term for Thursdays but there are actually 5 different events that happen on a monthly basis. Lemme break it down for you:


First Thursdays is SISTERS WITH VOICES: hosted by DEBBIE UPPER & friends, she brings along different DJs serves up a spicy blend of karaoke and dance music with an emphasis on female recording artists of the last 40 years.

Second Thursdays is RAY'S CABARET: Ray's musical theater students provide an hour of bedazzlement and titillation on the big stage, accompanied by none other than the master of keys, SHOMO on the piano! The performances run from 22 - 23:00, and afterwards you can sing on stage with the Pianoman, or with the karaoke machine!

Third Thursdays is PANTY SPLATTERS: The adamantly NOT-IT girls, T-WORD, MYSTI & RIPSY deliver the sexiest, sloppiest, weirdest karaoke party you've never dreamed of! Complete with silent screenings of their own video art, paprika-flavored potato chips, a panty raffle, poppy DJ sets, and general debauchery, this party is not one to be missed!

Fourth Thursdays is IMPROVINYLOKE: RUMPELSTIL's original karaoke creation! This is karaoke without slips of paper or a queue, for all of you impatient karaoke enthusiasts out there who can't wait your turn! The mics are there for anyone to grab and SING THEIR THING! RUMPELSTIL spins vinyls from contemporary music as well as 80s, and invites her guests to improvise and sing along! These karaoke jam sessions are really special and provide for some really magical moments!

And lastly we have the legendary BÄRAOKE party which happens once every three months (or once a season)! And unless you've been living under a rock for the past year, you're probably heard enough about BÄRAOKE so I won't even go there! But the next one is on GRÜN DONNERSTAG, APRIL 2, so get ready to GRRRRRROOOOOWWWWWL!


So now that you're well-versed in the Thurs-gays, get on board! Panty Splatters is TOMORROW (19.2) so get yourself a cheap wig and some come out of your comfort zone!

Does that answer your question?

Q - Yep.


DONNERSTAG 19.2.15 ab 22 Uhr -- PANTY SPLATTERS with T-WORD, MYSTI & RIPSY

HOT VIDZ. SEXY SINGING. TASTELESS DANCING. SHOT SLUTS. HARD FUCKS. TENDER KISSES. SLOPPY SECONDS. & A PANTY RAFFLE (DUH).
