Three Imaginary Girls: New Wave Karaoke
When most people turn ten, their parents throw them a slumber party. When local music blog Three Imaginary Girls celebrated its 10th birthday just over a week ago, the crew invaded Chop Suey and invited everyone in town to show off their best moves on the New Wave karaoke stage. Local musicians joined in on a party that Cyndi Lauper would've been proud of.
