Karaoke rules. Whether you prefer to keep your faculties sharp or down liquid courage, the act of singing to a room of strangers can be very liberating. My personal favorite is “Islands in the Stream,” but it’s always a challenge for this Dolly Parton fanatic to find a gent willing to attack Kenny Rogers’ vox. Whatever your level of vocal skill, make an ass out of yourself for a really good cause at Day of the Dead Skaraoke at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) on Friday, Nov. 1. All Saints’ Day seems a fitting time to fundraise for Camp Rising Sun, a residential summer camp program for youths on the autism spectrum. Makeup artists will be standing by to transform your visage into a calavera. Rock both muerto maquillage and the mic at this 21-and-over shindig starting at 9pm. Admission is only five bucks.
