The Bored and the Beautiful

The Pierces are enjoying themselves a little more than their biggest hit would suggest

The time has come: The Pierces want to karaoke.

Lucky for them, I am now drunk enough that singing with two professionals seems like a reasonable idea. We head over to Sing Sing Karaoke on Avenue A ("I love learning the real lyrics," says Catherine in the cab) and rent a private room, wherein they ply me with alcohol. I do a shot, and it works—the next thing I know, I'm warbling along with Catherine to 4 Non Blondes' "What's Up?" Later, I muster up the courage to sing Pat Benatar's "Fire and Ice" solo, making everyone wish they were deaf. The entire room then turns in an off-key, truly awful version of Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer," and the sisters perfectly perform Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams." (Suddenly a karaoke expert, I think, "Beyotches–that's my song!") For the gripping finale, the two vixens trade verses on Eminem's "Lose Yourself." We leave victorious, and I feel like I need a post-karaoke cigarette. Thanks for the fabulous time, ladies. Promise you'll call?

Addendum: Like a desperate date, I called them. Next Tuesday, the ladies are headlining Fly Life's five-year anniversary party at the Box, along with Fly Life regulars Murray Hill, Mike Albo, Tommie Sunshine, Larry Tee, Julie Atlas Muz, Angie Pontani, and the Wau Wau Sisters.
