Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Northern Italy stuff. Venice, Milan, and a couple other spots that I forget. My wife is doing all the planning because she's more passionate about where to go, and we have to be in some small village for a wedding in the middle somewhere. I'm a detail-oriented person, obviously :mrgreen: Where were...

[*]00:52:56 - Vowl Sounds I admit so far I have only skipped forward to listen to our bit so far, will listen to the rest soon... but I am DEEPLY disappointed that this link doesn't seem to be working so I can't listen to your rendition of "Enjoy the Silence." You should fix it! We want Depeche Mod...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

How's the brunch at the Rigby? I see that they have a Beatles Brunch every Saturday and Sunday 10-2. Beatles Music Videos, Bottomless Mimosas, Bloody Mary Bar. I haven't tried their brunch yet, but if I get a chance to before August, I'll report back! Keep in mind though that dinner will probably b...

Uh, yeah I do! I'm why she started hosting! I miss that girl. I will not be there this year. My wife and I are traveling through Italy all of July, so I can't spring for a trip right after that. Say hi to the hookah for me, though! haha, how awesome that you're the one who got her into karaoke host...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

I sadly don't go there anymore, but I was a karaoke host for about 3 years before I moved to NYC, from 2014 to the end of 2017. I miss that place so much! You can see my face over here https://twitter.com/bennyharv3. The regulars still know me, and I am usually known as the guy who sings Dream On. ...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

If two nights of Songfight Live isn't enough singing, this is my favorite karaoke bar. It's in a Middle Eastern restaurant/hookah lounge/belly dancing place/gay bar in the middle of a trailer park on top of a hill at the edge of town. STOP. THE. PRESSES. I PROBABLY HAVE SEEN YOU BEFORE. Ben used to...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

The mustard museum! How could I forget! (It's more of a mustard store but it is still a delightful attraction) If we're adding things as far outside of town as APT (which I agree is really wonderful), The House on the Rock is COMPLETELY INSANE in the best way, and I recommend it to everyone who I th...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

As far as hotels, I've had guests who have loved this B&B and I can attest to the view being amazing. When I got married, we sent our wedding guests here , which is right on the square, a couple of blocks from the Rigby, and it seemed fine. There are a lot of hotels in the area, and I'm not aware of...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

OK, by request, fluffy, here's another, less commercial list of enrichment activities! I have family visiting this weekend so I'm thinking about stuff to do in Madison anyway. Sightseeing, Part 1: Various Free Attractions. More to come later. Grumpy Mike's workplace (I presume). It's cool. I'm not g...

I will compile a list of other sightseeing type things too, that list was just part 1!

What other particular things do potential attendees like seeing and doing?

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

Yes! Madison is small, safe, pretty easy to navigate, and doesn't have much traffic. So "far away" in Madison terms for anyone coming from almost any major city is going to be kind of laughable. I've bought a lot of stuff at that Guitar Center. It just doesn't seem like the most exciting "local" mus...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019 Location

The cheapest option will usually be to come in via Milwaukee or Chicago, and both bus rides are pretty easy, Milwaukee more so. This may also be the easier option depending on how you feel about changing flights versus getting on a bus (the bus schedule is a bit limited.) I love flying in and out of...

I am seriously considering but going to try my hardest . Regarding the bus, which carriers would you recommend? I'm seeing several options including Van Galder, Megabus, and, of course, Greyhound.

I'm torn on whether I want to try to make something clever or phone-in a song about not having enough memory to save a video game, because clearly that's what we're being asked for with this combo.

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

here's a distraction since Pentangle was brought up. My first girlfriend was really into Pentangle's Sweet Child album and played it a lot when we lived together. I really loved Bruton Town and was stoked to find this live performance of it, thanks Glennn! I hadn't thought about "Let No Man Steal Y...

You know what this song could use? More autotune! And some more soulful wailing!
LOL! Maybe it could really use a I V vi IV chord progression too! :roll:

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Three "Color Me _____"

I should probably listen to the rest, really. The whole album is good. From a time when I used to listen to every record that came out. (I worked in a record store - it's like Amazon but you actually have to go there.) Had that album on CASSETTE! Must have been a store promo... I went to see Robyn ...
