Nothing ends. Nothing ever ends. Not even weekends.
Still reading after that horrible joke, eh? Well good for you, because there’s some really interesting stuff going on later this week, and I assure you that the writing gets much better after this…
There are always places to go and move ‘yer feet on a Tuesday night. Several fine DJs will take their record collection for a spin as Hot Dog! returns to Bar Matchless. 2-for-1 drinks and all the cutest folks in all of Greenpoint! DJ Phast Phreddie (aka the Boogaloo Omnibus) spins 60s Go-Go records at Barrette right on down there in Prospect Heights. We hear there will be go-go dancers (Go-Go music seems to attract those types). Oh, and let’s not forget about Lost & Found Soul DJ Night at Savalas.
I personally have heard at least two bands cover “TV Eye” this month alone. If I wanted to hear it a third time then I might just head on over to Otto’s Shrunken Head on Wednesday for Copycat. This time around they’re featuring the musical catalog of one Ignatious “Iggy” Pop. Live performances by Soldiers & Idiots and Bowery Boys (also idiots?), with DJs Xerox and Allen Dias (clearly idiots), and loads of drunken karaoke idiots all of whom probably sing better than Iggy nowadays.
It ain’t cheap ($15 plus a two overpriced drink minimum), but if you can afford it Joe’s Pub is hosting a rare(-ish) performance by The Mighty Hannibal. Backed by members of The Sweet Divines, the evening will also include a preview of the documentary “Showtime!” about the life and times of the Mighty One himself and Mr. Fine Wine spinning the Soul music for your pleasure.
If that’s not up your alley, you can always check out Boogaloo Shampoo at Beauty Bar, Thursday Night Thump at Enids, and Swimsuit Edition at Savalas. There is plenty of fun to be had by the impoverished on Thursday!
Sleep is for the weak end.
