Arlington’s Galaxy Hut has killed karaoke. Owner Lary Hoffman says he pulled the plug on the Thursday night crowd-pleaser after getting legal threats from “one of the agencies” that collect licensing fees. Hoffman wouldn’t specify which agency, or just how much the fees would cost, but he said the fees plus the cost for extra staffing was more than the revenue generated by the weekly event. Too bad, in my book. I love me some good suburban karaoke.
