A great karaoke night makes you feel like a rock star. And as with rock shows, the size of the venue dictates what kind of show is going down. Tiny rooms like Dirty Franks cultivate a level of intimacy that verges on familial, the same sort of vibe you'd get seeing local bands at a hole-in-the-wall rock club. (The fact that this particular hole in the wall serves delicious designer hot dogs until last call is merely a bonus.) As if the sriracha sauce wasn't spicy enough, Collin Clemons' bag of kooky costumes adds flavor to Monday night "Dirtyoke" sessions.
