Who needs “American Idol” when you have Thursday nights at the Horseshoe Casino? All you need to know about this karaoke night is that it’s with a full live band. Yes, you read that correctly, a full band, and it’s as badass as it sounds. Every Thursday at 8 p.m.-midnight you can live out your childhood dream of being the next great frontman as you belt out classics like ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’ and ‘Freebird’ on the elevated stage above bar 14Forty. While the song selection isn’t as extensive as normal karaoke spots, the fact there’s a guy next to you shredding guitar solos and a two-story LCD backdrop that animates all kinds of cool graphics more than makes up for their lack of ‘N Sync songs.
