Best Place to Hear the Worst Music 

'Worst Music Ever' at the Knockout

At the Knockout's free party "Worst Music Ever," held the first Thursday of every month, Dimitri Dickinson, Ryan Poulsen, and friends drop the bombs that usually drive people away from bars. Here they spin clunkers like Chris De Burgh, Smash Mouth, and Robbie Nevil to court drinkers with a healthy sense of humor. "Worst Music Ever" welcomes the backlash against the irony backlash — after all, sarcasm is too criminally addictive to banish for long. In a city that takes underground setlists very seriously, it's refreshing to detour into some mainstream audio trash with your tongue firmly planted in your cheek (when it's not hanging out of your mouth, all obnoxious butt-rock-style). Be sure to visit soon, though, as the DJs themselves admit on their MySpace page, "We have no faith that this night will last."
