Essential Tacoma karaoke venues

Years before I became a karaoke host, I was just an avid fan of this complicated art form. Largely sloppy, sometimes obnoxious, frequently transcendently goofy, occasionally just transcendent, karaoke is a uniquely egalitarian way for people to live out minor fantasies while also blowing off steam.
