If you’ve ever had a fantasy of being a punk rock frontman or woman, you can make your fantasy a reality with Punk Rock Karaoke.  Not only can you sing your favorite punk anthems over world class sound systems at world famous clubs around the country but you can do it with punk legends like Greg Hetson (Circle Jerks, Bad Religion) and Stan Lee (The Dickies).

Last night Punk Rock Karaoke invaded Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach which has always been a stronghold for hardcore punk in America. The band was incredibly tight last night and most of the aspiring punks that took the mic to play with their heroes sounded pretty fucking good.  Even the very small percentage of people who butchered the songs were so fucking bad that it was amazingly entertaining.  Just like any Karaoke night, singers signed up on a list before the set started and some signed up after a few servings of liquid courage, mid set.  Songs on the list included, Nervous Breakdown, Bloodstains, Fuck Armageddon, Gigantor, Astro Zombies, Bikeage, and California Uber Alles, just to name a few.

Punk Rock Karaoke has been around for almost 20 years now but most shows the all star lineup of punkers have played in that time have been in L.A.  Lately, the band has taken this great idea on the road by touring the U.S. and Canada.  The dudes just got back from playing The Flogging Molly, Salty Dog cruise which took place on an ocean liner that travelled from Miami to The Bahamas and featured shows by Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Frank Turner, Mariachi El Bronx and a ton of other punk and ska bands.

PRK will make a stop at Punk Rock Bowling on May 25th as one of the many after festival club shows taking place at just one of the amazing downtown vegas club venues.  In this case, Country Saloon and playing with Tartar Control.

Punk Rock has a tendency to take itself to seriously.  Punk Rock Karaoke destroys that and replaces it with nothing more than a beer swilling, lyric screaming, rockstar dreaming good time.  All scheduled dates are below.  See if your city is one of them.
