Sorry for the long drought between posts, garagepunknycareenos, I was across thee pond in the Burg of Ham, but lo, I hath returned and I bring thee the good word of Alcoholism!
All kinds of goodly getdown (mostly DJ gigs) this weekend but plenty of fun to be had.
Let’s start with tonight, shalleth wee?
Shakin’ All Over Sideways Down – Jonathan Toubin returns to his weekly 60′s gig at Home Sweet Home in the city after a trek down to SXSW in Austin. FREE.Chickaboom! – Melissa-Anne and Jenni’s monthly 50′s/60′s dancey party at Legion in Williamsburg with special guest Charles Gaskins and ME. I’ll be slinging lots of fab platters I picked up down in Chattanooga including the famed “Chattanooga Walk” ! FREE.
The Weakends (France), Golden Triangle @ Don Pedro, Brooklyn — Golden Triangle is back from SXSW after reportedly (rumor alert) winning some kind of contest down there (label deal yet?) — The Weakends from France are in town, are on rob’s house, I hear they’re pretty good. Cheap well liquor til 10. Cover (not sure how much).
The ____Â (Norway), The Fleshtones, the A-Bones, The Demands @ Southpaw, Park Slope, Brooklyn — here’s an old school garage night for ya. The Fleshtones’ faithful will be there (shoutout Fuzzco!) as will lotsa other folks who like their beer cold and their women easy! $10
Soul Clap! Jonathan Toubin’s Soul DJ night at Glasslands near the river in Brooklyn is back with the famous dance off contest… whoever wins gets half the door money. $3 cover.
Anabolics, Jesse Bates & His Flying Guitars, Y__ Y___s, Jadewalkers, Back CCs @ Don Pedro – this is my pick for Saturday if you’re still alive after Friday. Here’s a fat bill of
garage, punk, and power pop. Yum Yums are ALSO from Norway (ever get the feeling you’ve been had?) and the Anabolics, ‘Walkers and ‘CCs will provide the necessary lesson in how to do the “Manhattan Avenue”. You know what I’m talking about. Cover… $5,$6,$7?
Delia “Dee Dee” Gartrell with Sweet Divines @ Dig Deeper, Five Spot Soul Supper Club, Brooklyn – monthly classic soul night returns with another Atlantian soul/funker. (Once) married to Mighty Hannibal, Gartrell fits into that late 60′s “sistah funk” genre with mid-tempo sass to spare. DJs Mr Robinson and Honky round out the night with frenetic soul tunes. $15 at the door.
Well, that’s it for me. Hope to see y’all Friday night, wear your dancing shoes and your stovepipe!
