Arts and Culture Commentary By Amata Dawson
It was raining talent, not gnomes, at the Spring Fling karaoke event Sunday evening. Every singer hit the mark, from newly crowned Miss AP Kayla Calhern's opening Chipmunks tune that probably wasn't the one with Luda, to Phedre Dumouriez's encore that wasn't that song about killing Earl.
Highlights included Lynn Zero being Sorry; a woman named Hailey imagining Demons; Phedre making it through the night; Dead Eva Perry all Toxic; the new dispensary guy being Elvis; and Times reporter Nick air-spanking to Sir Mix-a-Lot.
But wait, there's more. Prom Queen Amaya sang "You Don't Own Me;" Hunter was head banging out a Skid Row classic; and Malcolm Loon was simply she-banging.
The grand finale included Rubie, who brought down the house with "It's Raining Men." But it was Times editor Phedre who made a repeat visit to the stage to close out Spring Fling with "Better Things to Do."
DJ Sav, of Club Climax, was Master of Ceremonies and every bit as good as the funnel cakes that should have been served at the carnival. Maybe next year, Spring Fling organizers, maybe next year.
