Weekend wrap-up (or the lack of one); Girl Drink Drunk (karaoke) tonight; all-ages update…

Allergies kept me out of the clubs this weekend. If you saw something that was particularly hot and want to expound upon it, let your feelings be known on the webboard.

Girl Drink Drunk — The Waiting Room’s answer to Lincoln’s Shithook Karaoke — is tonight. If you’ve been dying to stand up and belt out one of your favorite songs alongside one of the city’s best rock bands, well this is your chance. And it may be your last chance for awhile, as GDD is going on a short hiatus.

Chatting online last week with a Slowdown staffer, I was told that a total of nine youths have had their parents sign and submit a notarized authorization that allows them to get into all-ages shows at Slowdown. Not exactly a land rush of consent forms, especially after all the hoo-ha surrounding it, but I have no doubt that the numbers will grow as we get closer to Rilo Kiley and Tokyo Police Club, and after the next serious under-age-drawing band gets announced (Tilly and the Wall, perhaps?). I’ve also been told that a third venue — The Saddle Creek Bar — has submitted paperwork to host all-ages shows. Any other clubs out there getting into the all-ages fray?
