Election Night Open Mic?

Who's interested in an election night watch party where we pass the "share" around and play our protest songs live? I've got a bunch and I know many of you do, too.

I can host a Zoom (for 45 minutes at a time) and restart it at the top of each hour.

Might be cathartic.

Re: Awesome Music (related) Videos

I dug this song when it came out (freshman year in college), but it got so over-played I turned against the 'Tramp. With all the years passed now, this cover is amazing. Plus, Nataly's voice just hits it. Yes, I've got a thing for this girl, but this puts her at a new level.

I totally missed this. I Can See Clearly was such an iconic song of the times. Fabulous voice.

Roymond’s and Lunkhead’s both have an f-hole. .... are they actually semi hollow body guitars? Or is it just a groove?

Re: #songfight! IRC channel information

So, is the strategy for adding a godzillion chat/post platforms to water down the songfight community?
Because it's pretty ridiculous. Or, as I suspect, am I just an old hag? <queue Caravan Ray>

Re: Where would you move to if <not your candidate> wins in November?

Good point, the US is huge (though not nearly as big as typical cylindrical projection suggests). And the culture, climate, infrastructure, etc. is quite varied. I've been to every state in the US and most Canadian provinces (by car!) and it's truly amazing how diverse this place is. Yet, it's nothi...

Well, this has been a very interesting conversation. THANK YOU! I was not really expecting to debate much about the USA, more about other places. But since we went there... While I think the American experiment has been off the rails for decades, only recently has a major party publically and vocall...

Song Fight! Live!! 2020: Housing/lodging

Obviously, this thread is not needed. BUT I wanted to celebrate the wonderful off-stage lives of Songfighters during SFL in the past. The housing, the food, the rehearsals, the walks, the beer... I was fortunate to attend a few...Seattle (2003), Boston (2005), Spokane (2009), San Francisco (2010), N...

Re: Subscribe to our YouTube channel

So, I have a few videos that can be mixed into the stream. I guess I just list them here? - OK Cupid by Frankie Big Face (cover) - Sometime This Morning (non-songfight) - Thunder Storm (live at SFL 2014) which captures some of the mayhem of Songfight Live, namely the "spontaneous band" phenomenon.

Where would you move to if <not your candidate> wins in November?

Half seriously, what if the election proves to be a "mandate" for things that truly disgust you? Part of me wants to move to Portland, OR. Vermont is where my family place is and it's pretty nice. My wife and kids recently got their German citizenship (oh, the irony), so the EU is certainly in the m...
