UPSCALE UNDERGROUND'S LIVE KARAOKE
8 p.m., Crush Wine Bar. $5.

Karaoke can be fun. There are worse ways to spend an odd Thursday than laughing at your atonal friends work through “More Than a Feeling,” high on liquid courage. Even better if you happen to catch a regular, someone who'd be touring the karaoke circuit if it existed, who pantomimes, wears a special outfit and sings with a bright-eyed confidence that far exceeds their talent. But after a few drunk girls you don't know giggle their way through “Strawberry Wine,” karaoke can get tedious pretty quick. So here's hoping Upscale Underground is on to something. On Thursday, in lieu of the promotional company's regular Thursday night listening parties, they present live karaoke, itself a novel and welcome departure from the typical karaoke, with Soul Food laying down the musical foundation. To further fit the night into a niche, Upscale Underground sticks to its raison d'etre and makes it a night of nu-soul and R&B, too. Karaokers can pick from smooth jams like Anita Baker's “Sweet Love,” R. Kelly's “Step in the Name of Love,” Michael Jackson's “PYT” and Angie Stone's “Brother.”

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
