KARAOKE APOCALYPSE: Live Band Karaoke With The Dead Motley Sex Maidens
Splice three parts musical chops and two parts ‘we don’t give a f*ck’ with an unabashed affection for catchy songs in all their cheesy, head-banging, sing-along glory, then turn the whole mess up to 11. That’s Karaoke Apocalypse with The Dead Motley Sex Maidens. Founded in 2004 by Austin music stalwarts Chepo Pena and Adam Tyner — and rounded out with Chris Nine and Mario Alvarez, the Sex Maidens are Austin’s #1 live karaoke band. And it’s no surprise. These musicians cut their teeth in some of the best original Austin bands. With an ever growing catalog of punk, rock, and hair metal classics from the ’70s and ’80s — from “Suffragette City” to “Run to the Hills” to “I Wanna Be Your Dog” and more – the Sex Maidens transform civilians into rock stars in three magic minutes. This is not your sister-in-laws karaoke, unless your sister-in-law happens to be a video vixen. Speaking of… to ensure that Karaoke Apocalypse doesn’t explode into full-blown chaos, the show is (partially) kept on the rails by a bevy of hostesses: Ruby Lamb of Satan’s Cheerleaders fame, the luminous Sarah Clark of Pearlescent, Stella from pop-punk legends Cruiserweight, and author/Rollergirl Melicious.
TechKaraoke™ was created by Brett Petersel and Michael Gruen as a way to bring tech communities together, not discuss anything tech-related, and to rock out to some of the worst songs ever.
TechKaraoke™ is currently managed by Brett Petersel and Jennifer Wojcik.
