NON-STOP karaoke for “connection”, “consent” and “catharsis” will run across January 4 and 5 at the new Pig Melon project space on Lord Street. Karaoke healer and Chicken Treat showgirl Consensual Connie is holding the protest singalong and “joyful resistance” for those wearied by the federal government’s “actions and lack of actions” on just about every major issue.
Connie (aka local music scene-improver Rose Kingdom-Barron) says if you’re looking for a 24-hour party in Perth “it’s either this or the casino”. Also if you don’t like to sing you can say the safe word “kaya-no-ke” at any time. Pig Melon’s at 161 Lord Street and entry’s free or by donation, just RSVP at eventbrite (search “24 Hour Karaoke – a Very Political Sing-In”). The show’s a little preview ahead of Connie’s Fringeworld show Karaoke Rodeoke running at The Gold Digger January 17 and 18.
