LVHRD Foundation, the semi-secret NYC members club recognized for its elusive events, will host another party in its saga of creative competitions. This time, on Tuesday 30 May 2006 you can expect a karaoke battle of epic proportions. MCFGHT: Karaoke Showdown will take place in an undisclosed Chinatown venue. Competitors consist of publicists, publishers and producers – not your average vocalists, and not your average showdown. Isn’t that what karaoke is all about?
You might have heard about LVHRD through some of their past competitive undertakings: an architect duel between Grzywinski Pons Architects (of Hotel on Rivington fame) and global giant Arquitectonica, a vending machine eating competition between J. Walter Thompson and the NYC Ballet (the ballet lost), and an underpants-only video game tournament.
Sapporo Beer and Pravda Vodka are on board to keep the showdown hydrated, which should make for some karaoke pretty interesting.
LVHRD never promotes the venue location in advance. On the day of the event, members receive a text message with the address. For non-members who want to attend, LVHRD typically charges an admission fee. You can find all the details at their site, lvhrd.com (sort of). Be sure mention Cool Hunting.
