Of Montreal Contest Winners & Karaoke Playlist

Thanks everyone for entering our Sing Indie Rock Karaoke With Of Montreal Contest. After patient and dutiful deliberation, camp Of Montreal has returned with the name of our Grand Prize winner, none other than one Griffin Walker. Congrats Griffin, and check your email! You are the only person walking into Studio B this Saturday guaranteed a song with the world’s greatest karaoke band. Griffin will sing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” with Kevin and crew, and he’ll have an extra ticket so a friend can attest to this later that night while cruising. (We know a couple of other people picked that song, too, but Griffin was whom OM chose. Sorry! But know that you’re our backups in case GW doesn’t answer our email.) The contest runners-up are Matthew Sklar, who shrewdly preyed upon our affinity for Joe Jackson with his selection, “Steppin’ Out”; and Dan Crawford, who caught us in one of our “‘Web In Front’ is the greatest album opener ever” moods (besides, how great would it have been to see OM cover Archers Of Loaf?!). Both of you get a pair of tickets each … and there’s hope still for your fronting OM.

If you’re going Saturday night, here’s what you need to know: Everybody has a chance to sing with the band. The sign-up list will be presented near the entrance; you jot down your name, and they’ll chose song-singers, raffle-style. And this is worth noting: Of Montreal tell us they are giving “huge priority” to folks who come in costume — and the more outlandish the getup, the greater your chances. (There may even be a costume contest, but don’t hold ‘em to it.) Worker bees will hand out lyric sheets at the event and there may be a side-screen projector during the show.

And after all that madness, a full set of Of Montreal! Can’t wait to see Kevin’s “attire.”

So if you wanna get prepared (or are just curious), take the jump for the band’s final master karaoke list. It does not disappoint.
