Since 2002, Karaoke Killed the Cat has been one of New
York’s most bold and vocal night parties. Every Friday, founder Chris Goldteeth and hype man Lord Easy unleash a show of dance, song and the occasional pants-less singalong at Brooklyn’s Union Hall. With no inhibitions and a democratic approach to exhibition, the two karaoke DJs have built this midnight party into a community-building testament to oral tradition.
