Imagine yourself onstage at karaoke singing a New Pornographers song

Our pal Nattles got to do it, last year at a Karaoke Underground show in Austin:

A video posted by Allan Hough (@punkgirls) on

The Karaoke Underground is in SF for the very first time this Sunday night at Rickshaw Stop!

1-2-3-4 Go! Records is open btw

We originally reported that they were opening on Record Store Day (April 18th) — but in fact they are softly opened right now! And chock full of good stuff!

(I won $100 in a music-related bet last night, and spent every last cent of it at 1-2-3-4 Go! this morning.) (Also, if you spend $100 you get a free t-shirt.)

Free show tonight: Culture Abuse, Scraper, Never Young

Wood Shoppe Culture Abuse Mission MissionTonight at Brick and Mortar check out their monthly FREE party Wood Shoppe featuring three pretty cool Bay Area punk bands Culture Abuse, Scraper, and Never Young!

Future Twin at the Rickshaw tonight!

And it’s all ages!

Music for the Mission: This week at Pop’s

[Editor's note: Pop's has something happening every single night of the week. If you're browsing the Mission Mission homepage right now, be sure to click the "more" link at the bottom of this post to see the full calendar. Pop's rules!]

Be sure to stop by Pops Bar on Friday 4/10 for 24&York, a dance party for the neighborhood! Brought to you by Shane King and Uh Huh Heard, and featuring local DJs…, rap music, cheap bear and good company! Shane says, “The idea behind 24&YORK was to keep things simple, just a place where folks could go on a Friday night to drink, talk, and listen to rap music. Pop’s was my first local when I moved to the neighborhood in 2004, and when I heard it was reopening, with a sound system, it was immediately clear the idea had a found a home.”

’90s night at the Knockout this Saturday!

It’s Debaser’s 7-year anniversary! Can you believe it? It’s 2015 now, the ’90s are just finally far enough away that you could start folding some of those hits into Oldies Night (tonight at the Knockout), and yet Debaser has been going strong for seven tenths of a decade! Congrats, boys!

Still only $5. (Dig those crazy ’08 prices!) Or free with a flannel before 11, as always.

RSVP and invite your friends.

Emo night at the Knockout this Friday!

We know how much you miss Diary, the original Mission emo night at Pop’s that sadly is no more, but rather than get all emo about it, now you’ve got another chance to sing along too loudly to Understanding in a Car Crash at the Knockout every month with Make Me a Mixtape!

Come and party like it’s 1997!

Playing the best 90s/00s old school emo,punk and post-hardcore tunes. All vinyl!

Friday 6-9pm

And the best part is they’re not even trying to trademark the term “Emo Night” like those doofuses down in LA.

Also, after the last American Football tune drowns out, go grab a couple tacos at Cancun and then pop back to the Knockout for Primo’s Oldies Night!  Look at that, I just planned out your whole Friday night.  Now do it to it!

Two DJ nights I’d attend tonight based on the poster art alone

First, for happy hour, there’s Eighty-Five Song Happy Hour:

And later on, Lil’ Raps Night:

What the heck?
