Most people karaoke in shady dives, witnessed only by friends, and those who mock them in clipped Asian languages. If you feel your degradation deserves a bigger stage, hit Spotlight.
Spotlight's a four-story, 23,000sq ft facility that aims to treat brave amateurs like the stars so few of them are destined to become. Here's how:
- A "green room", where you'll receive advice from hair/makeup artists, choreographers, and, hopefully, friends committed to talking you out of the choreographers' advice
Naturally, fees here are considerably steeper: $28 per performance, plus extra to take home a CD or DVD. But it's all worth it for an experience that could have lasted four barely-remembered, drunken minutes, but now will last a lifetime.
