Karaoke Tuesdays at 10 PM with the Jared Michael Gniewek Karaoke Warzone
The irreverent and raucous Jared Michael Gniewek Karaoke Warzone has been destroying popular music since 2010 when ex-metal singer and comic book
writer, Jared Michael Gniewek, began substituting for Bay Area karaoke 
icon, KJ Paul. Upon leaving San Francisco, a fundraiser was held by 
both enthusiasts and professionals alike to start the Warzone, sending him off to New York City saying “show
 them how we do it.” His events consist of a positive and 
jovial environment where people celebrate what karaoke is all about, 
transforming pop music into folk music and making extroverts go too far.

Karen & the Sorrows Record Release Party with Humble Tripe and The Paisley Fields
Come celebrate Brooklyn queer country band Karen & the Sorrows's debut LP The Names of Things at Branded Saloon! They'll be joined by fellow queer country bands The Paisley Fields and North Carolina's Humble Tripe. New York Music Daily writes, "Country keeps evolving and Karen & the Sorrows are taking it to a place it's never been before, a good and creepy one." Fuck Yeah, Queer Music says, "They write loss and heartbreak, and goddamn are they good at it. The songs are quiet, but devastating, with a good mix of dirty electric guitar and absolutely haunting pedal steel." The Sorrows also co-produce the Gay Ole Opry, the first ever queer country music festival, and host Branded Saloon's popular Queer Country Monthly, helping to build new community for people who love country music even if country music doesn't always love them back.
