"Well, folks, the snake has officially reached its tail. The crew behind the '90s-themed Debaser party has gotten together to create "Last Nite," a brand new event that, much like its parent, is dedicated to reviving a specific moment in time. In this case, it's all about that brief period in the early-'00s when garage rock, dance punk, and electroclash all emerged and combined to form the soundtrack to the-then nascent hipster lifestyle. Resident DJs Jamie Jams and EmDee will be on hand to take you back to the days when "deck" was almost an adjective." - Derek Opperman, SF Weekly
"Oh gawd it's here: let the retro-00s (retr00s?) commence! Jamie Jams and Emdee, the fiendish minds behind seminal '90s revival party Debaser, kick it into the Interpol-Shins-Strokes-White Stripes era and take you slightly back to "a time when punks suddenly remembered how to dance" — you could still hear guitars on the radio." - Marke B., SF Bay Guardian

WHEEL of KARAOKE! ~ is a fun karaoke game show where audience members sing songs while taking on the Wheel of Fate in hopes to win the grand prize! Guest comedians, musicians, & vaudeville acts cameo throughout the night. ~ FREE! ~ 9:00 pm
"WHEEL of KARAOKE!" is a fun and engaging game show judged and MC'd by local comics and entertainers. Audience members receive a raffle ticket for the chance to compete, a la "The Price is Right." Contestants spin the wheel of fate to determine an added challenge for their song performance. (Challenge categories include: upside down, I'm not touching you, tempo shift- to name a few.) Then they're judged by the comics on accuracy, creativity and likability. Yes, it's subjective. The two top scoring singers go head to head in the pure talent round where we (judges) choose their song and they can make use of costumes, audience members, dance and special skills to create their best one song act. Oh yeah, you get five minutes to prep for that.
This week's judges:
Stand-up comedy by:
Karaoke DJ: Amanda Garcia-White
and Krista Fatka
