Best Karaoke - 2012
If karaoke makes you queasy — that is, if you don't relish the thoughtof standing onstage with a giant room full of strangers staring you downwhile you butcher "Rollin' in the Deep" — then what you need to do is gatherten of your closest friends and head to PJ's for karaoke, which startspromptly at 9 p.m. every Friday. Your pals can sit on the old couch infront of the stage and cheer you on, and they'll probably take up abouthalf the space in the bar's intimate upstairs area, leaving less room forstrangers who are surely judging you. Just kidding, but PJ's does get packed,so get there early, like 8:30 p.m. That'll give you enough time to stockup on liquid courage, too.

PJ’s karaoke nights are unpredictable

Friday nights at PJ’s are a lesson in the human condition. On everyother night of the week, the first floor of the creaky converted housefunctions as a sports bar for the Montrose old guard. They’re getting beersin plastic cups from PJ and smoking on the front porch.
On Fridays, there is karaoke upstairs. Karaoke that is ordinary butsomehow also stunning. Like public singing at any other bar, most participantsare somewhat drunk and men playing crotch guitar with the mic stand isnot unusual. But unlike some karaoke bars that are filled with shiny 20-somethingstaking shots, people from all walks of life come to PJ’s and bare theirsouls.
A large man named Marcel, who is wearing an oversize black and goldembossed T-shirt, might imbue Garbage’s #1 Crush with a surprising amountof passion while another guy celebrates his birthday by screaming Audioslave.At PJ’s, it’s difficult to predict what will happen on stage.
The man who takes the requests and runs the show happens to have a wonderfulvoice and often accompanies singers on a second microphone at his seatto make up for any hesitation or bad vocals.
Others don’t need any help, and can handle Linda Ronstadt perfectlyon their own.
Given that PJ’s looks a lot like a seedy basement, with rainbow lights,covered windows and low-slung futons, it’s an unexpected place to be confrontedso honestly with the vagaries of the human heart. Then again, it mightbe one of the most natural.
