Best Karaoke

Keyboard Man Karaoke

Molly’s Public House, 400 W. 23rd St., (410) 889-0091,

Posted 9/21/2005

Why fight microphone-hogging regulars at an average karaoke night when you can party down with a mustachioed, Tab-obsessed karaoke superhero? Hot on the heels of an almost illegally hilarious performance at Atomic Books’ last “I Hate The ’80s Night,” Keyboard Man, aka Kevin Hoffman from the Twin Six, set up shop at Molly’s a few months ago, creating a cheap, casual karaoke experience where even the most paranoid shower-singer can feel good about belting out some ’80s favorites. Accompanied by the audience’s inevitable chant of “Tab! Tab! Tab!”—the Keyboard Man Kamikaze, a drink featuring the diet soda, is now a menu regular—the Keyboard Man Karaoke experience is a lot like hanging out in someone’s basement on a Saturday night, getting drunk, and listening to your friends butcher everything from Lionel Richie to Foreigner. In other words, exactly what a night of karaoke should provide: no pressure, no posturing, and plenty of alcohol-soaked fun.
