State 37. Idaho. City of Boise. Bar: Overlands Song: ‘Brick’ - Ben Folds Five. A year after Mason and I hit MN, IA, NB & SD in 4 days, @sloaner (aka my buddy Jeff aka karaoke name ‘Carl’) and I set out to conquer 4 more states in 4 more days. This time starting in Idaho. Boise was going to be one of the bigger cities we hit on this trip so I was packed to the brim with research and after the roaring success and new friends made on last year’s tour I was expecting big things, but smaller markets mean smaller crowds and I became a real karaoke diva. We started in the bar that had the best reviews, still had a happy hour crowd and had amazing velvet paintings. I tried crowd warming up tactics like buying a round of super cheap shots for the bar, but no one was singing. No one was latching on. Jeff wasn’t so picky so he got up and belted one out, but I was being way selective. With the quest winding down in my head I was like, ‘No! This isn’t how this trip starts! I can’t sing here.’ So we moved to the next bar on the list and once again I deemed it unworthy of my Idaho performance. Finally, we came to a 3rd bar. Club 44. Many locals had actually WARNED us against this bar, as it was next door to a strip club and people said the guys would just drink for cheap at the karaoke bar and then bounce between the strip club and karaoke bar. That may be true, but this ended up being the best place (after the 1st velvet painting bar.) The KJ, an enthusiastic & nice guy named Coby was into our quest and with time running short he got me up right away. With my desire for ‘first song in a state’ variety & the want to take this stressful day out on an audience I sang ‘Brick’ by Ben Folds Five. It went over about as well as you’d think it would in a crowd of guys trying to get drunk enough to get a lap dance, but at that point I didn’t care. We had conquered Idaho.
