Biography:
If you ever get the chance to do karaoke with Mish Way, don’t even hesitate. Just go for it, right away. You really do owe it to yourself. About a year ago I found myself in a Lower East Side karaoke bar with Mish and various New York music gadflies. We’d become fast friends (Way and I, that is. I was already friends with most of said gadflies) after she began regularly contributing smart, open-hearted and often blush-inducing pieces to the Talkhouse, a website I help run, and I’d been a fan of her band since I’d heard White Lung’s 2012 Sorry, a hardcore blitzkrieg that doesn’t even hit the 20-minute-mark.

But despite seeing her perform just a day before the karaoke party, it wasn’t until, goaded by peer pressure and an appropriately inappropriate amount of whiskey, Way took the mic for a revelatory rendition of one of the worst songs of this century. I won’t embarrass her by naming it. (Maybe you can get it out of her.) But it was at that moment that I realized “Damn. She can sing. Like, really, really sing. Not just growl. Damn.”
