Spoon Lead Singer Rocks the Book Party Crowd

While we were out partying with the business book bigwigs Monday night, Brian Raftery was throwing a party downtown to celebrate the publication of Don’t Stop Believing, his account of “how karaoke conquered the world and changed my life.” The evening featured live backup music from the Punk Rock/Heavy Metal Karaoke Band, and among those who rose to the occasion was Britt Daniel, the lead singer of Spoon—seen here performing Wire’s “1 2 X U.”

One of Raftery’s friends has posted more photos from the evening.
