Wanna Sing Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing' at Karaoke? It'll Cost You. (Pic)

Guess this means it's officially time to stop believing, folks. See above for visual proof that the backlash against Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" has begun -- at least for one local Karaoke Jockey.

The above page was spotted in the songbook of S.F. jock Roger Niner, who now charges $5 to sing Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" at the various clubs he visits throughout the week. 

This is either a brilliant way to rake in some extra cash, or a crusade on behalf of all things holy. And with all the S.F. Giants madness this past fall -- what would Ashkon say about this? -- and the creeping hegemony of That One Damn Song You Hear All The Time At Karaoke, we can certainly understand this move from the latter perspective. As SF Weekly clubs editor John Graham (who snapped this pic) opined, "It's the first step toward a better musical world!"

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
