Contest: H Street Karaoke Championship The full-tilt narcissism inspired by the document-everything era (or perhaps the narcissism came first?) has created some interesting cultural byproducts: Everyone's a photographer; everyone's a foodie; everyone has a really important story to tell. Also? Karaoke has replaced kick ball as the thing you used to do because you enjoyed it that you now do so you can post it on your Facebook timeline. If that sounds like you, the hippest corridor in D.C.--H St. NE--is hosting its fourth annual karaoke contest. The show is free, while $6 gets you a pound of PBR and "a shot of crap whiskey." That sounds like a great Facebook post, if not a reasonably good time. Jan. 26 at the Rock and Roll Hotel, 1353 H St. NE. Phone: 202/388-ROCK. Web: http://www.rockandrollhoteldc.com
