After the explosive Anti-Karaoke during Carnaval, we assumed the next one wouldn't be as festive. But the A.K. on March 2nd was absolutely incredible.
Rachel opened the show with Blister in the Sun by The Violent Femmes, followed by Ready To Go by Republica. The euphoria in the club was palpable even in these first few minutes of the show.
As Rachel herself would note various times thoughout the show, tonight there were many people from countries other than Spain: groups of people who'd come from as far as New York City and Chicago, who'd heard about the show and were ready to live an epic night of rock-n-roll.
Eymi, an American woman who debuted tonight in the A.K., was one of the big stars of the evening.
Her interpretation of Total Eclipse Of The Heart got the crowd going. Keeping in mind that Eymi performed in the first fifteen minutes of the show, it's clear that the audience tonight was especially ecstatic.
Eymi also performed sexy dancing duties during the performance of another first-timer, Matt Brattin, who sang Rick James's Superfreak.
Speaking of debuts, Elizabeth definitely offered a groovy version of Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit.
One couple with the most pathetic stage name I've heard in a long time (Caca y Culo & Pedo y Pis), nevertheless offered a fun version of AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long that ended with a passionate suck-face.
Juan Sucio sang the furious anthem of The Sex Pistols, Anarchy in the U.K..
Alicia Escupe debuted in A.K. with the old Alice Cooper Group classic, Eighteen.
Inglorious Bastards also performed in the show for the first time, with an absolutely chaotic interpretation of Ace Of Spades by Motörhead.
Sporting a sexy maid's uniform, Rachel appeared onstage with a broom in hand and, in what would be one of her most inspired performances, dedicated Tammy Wynette's Stand By Your Man all the married women in the club.
In his second appearance at A.K., David Le reigned again with a Paradise City by Guns NRoses, with the entire club joining in on the chorus.
Dory & Nemo sang Toxicity by System Of A Down.
Duro de Oído opted for a hard rock anthem: Lit Up, the single that made Buckcherry famous.
In her indispensable Vegas number of the evening, Rachel sang "New York, New York" according to custom, and emptied a bottle of Jack Daniels into mouths of the crowd.
Rusty James & Co. interpreted one of the most kitschy 80's standards: "The Final Countdown" by Europe.
One of the great veterans of the show, Teddy, bid farewell to Anti-Karaoke with Train In Vain by The Clash.
Sadly for us, Teddy has decided to return to the USA. We hope he comes back to visit us in the future.
Bib, another veteran of A.K., came back to interpret Love Me Two Times by The Doors.
Great reappearance of Kurt Cobain in A.K. As the intro of The Stones' You Cant Always Get What You Want sounded, Rachel came onstage as Kurt, sporting angel wings.
Sharing with the crowd a pithy observation of the day-to-day in The Afterlife, (s)he followed it up with a thunderous Smells Like Teen Spirit.
Helene Pierre Fedora sang the definitive AC/DC ditty, Highway To Hell.
One of my favorite moments of the evening was the superb interpretation of The Bee Gees' Night Fever that Rocksales gave us.

The evening came to a close with a Killing In The Name by R.A.T.M. that was even more incendiary than usual, sung by Rachel and Redd Kross Contingent.
This was followed by Fabri & Friends with nothing else than Cowboys From Hell by Pantera.
And for the final number, Kids In America interpreted by Rachel alongside dozens of crazed Antikaraokians.
