And in, er, music/tech news of a much lower-tech variety: Tom Temprano, co-owner of Virgil's Sea Room in the Mission, announced this week that the bar, which occupies the space Nap's III left behind (both physically and in our hearts), will be bringing back the grand Nap's tradition of sloppy, gleeful karaoke around the glow of a two-tone screen. Starting Jan. 23, every Thursday night at 9pm will find Nap himself back at home base, MCing the action, with songbooks and harmonicas in tow. Because technology will march forward — video may have killed the radio star — but drunken renditions of Salt 'n' Pepa's "Shoop"? Karaoke, my friends, is forever.
