Initially being disappointed with the available song-list (no Talking Heads, Ramones or Iggy Pop) and having some reservations, I found 'Ace of Spades' by Motörhead and from then on everything worked out just fine. The venue - Karaoke Box - catered for booze with the most economical choice being a $6 bottle of decent (but not amazing) sake as well as offering complimentary mic sanitation ...uh... sleeves? In the reception you could hear a melange of songs bleeding through the doors of the front rooms making for an interesting ambient mix formed from these karaoke-strained song fragments (you could hear the vocals significantly over the background tracks).

And in the meantime, this:
