Tonight! Retribution Gospel Choir, GPSIKM And Seileen, Or Karaoke Killed The Cat


If you take Low’s sluggish, glacially paced, minimalist rock and crank up the volume while beating the living daylights out of guitars and drums, you’ve got Low frontman Alan Sparhawk’s Retribution Gospel Choir (that’s them to the left), who’re showcasing their recently released second album, aptly titled 2, at Mercury Lounge. If you’d prefer an occasion to wear that petticoat and corset (or for the fellows, that velvet cape), electro-baroque Gothic collectives GPKISM and Seileen take over Santos Party House. And all you narcissists who’d rather hear yourselves belt out some chart-toppers, Brooklyn Bowl’s dance party/sing-along, Karaoke Killed the Cat, returns after a five-year hiatus. Best of all, it’s free.
