1 - 2 weeks availability
Karaoke creates its own culture, while reflecting much about the wider culture and the place of popular music as a media form. Its complexities and nuances make karaoke a marvelous ethnographic subject, and Rob Drew is compelling in his experience and understanding. Karaoke Nights is both a keen observation on the external behavior of deejays, performers, and audience and an intimate portrait of the emotional rollercoaster that is the internal life of a karaoke singer.
Rob Drew teaches communication at Saginaw Valley State University. His research interests include ethnography, popular music, and media audiences.
