Karaoke returns to the Springs

Anyone can be a pop star, at least if he or she frequents the karaoke scene that is reportedly making a comeback in Colorado Springs. Thursday night at Good Company on Academy Boulevard, we expected to see many fellow incoherent college students slurring the lyrics from whatever they heard on 96.1 on the way over. Instead, we were first pleasantly surprised—and later, blown away—by top-notch vocalizing. Maybe our original attitude had been an example of typical CC-to-Springs condescension. After all, Good Company is the bar that holds the Independent’s prestigious title of best karaoke bar.
