We know very well that you’ll all be going to see King Khan and Mark Sultan next weekend. Better get yer dancin’ in early!
Additional note: no that’s not them.
Okay, there’s something (what could it be?!) about this gig which always brings out the worst of my bad punmanship, but I have no doubt that it’s a swell place to get down. And even if it isn’t, it’s the only place to go dance to Garage and Soul music on Monday night, so deal.
Once again Hot Dog! returns to Bar Matchless once again (I said it once again, you got a problem with that?) Once again featuring no cover, 2-for-1 drinks and the finest R&B, Garage Rock, Soul, and whatever else the DJs feel like spinning all night long. I know I’ll be there (Ed: no, he won’t! Really! We mean it!).
Savalas may be hosting Lost & Found, a night of Soul, Funk and Latin music. I cannot confirm that because once again our calendar says “Unconfirmed”. It would be lovely if someone would head over there sometime, confirm that this thing is happening, and then tell us. You can leave feedback on our website, www.garagepunknyc.com.
This Wednesday look for New York Night Train Wednesday at Motor City Bar. This week featuring Micki Pellerano, who appears to be a visual artist of some sort. We’re not sure exactly how that’s gonna work, but sometimes predictability is overrated.
Also look for Mr Fine Wine at his usual (and we do mean usual: he’s been doing it every Wednesday night since 1996 apparently) Soul DJ Night. Head to Botanica in the city and go on downstairs to the room containing the cage they’ve been keeping him in for the past 13 years and enjoy!
If you happen to like live music, this really ain’t the week for you. While our calendar mentions a show featuring Mondo Topless and The Anabolics at Crash Mansion, further research suggests that the show is on Friday somewhere in Philadelphia. Needless to say, “oops”. The person in charge of our calendar will be sacked. Then we will tie up the sack with a nice sturdy rope and throw it into the East River. Then we will nuke the East River from orbit.
So anyway, if ya’ wanna dance you can always head on over to Boogaloo Shampoo, a “soul dance galore” at the Beauty Bar. Or what about shakin’ it to the sounds of punk, glam, and psych rock at Thursday Night Thump at Enid’s? Oh yeah, no excuse to stay home that night.
(Note to FBI: that was a joke. Although GaragePunkNYC did not sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty we are not currently nuclear-capable. We also do not possess the technology to send a craft into orbit although admittedly DJ Shimmy is quite tall.)
First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win. After that, apparently they dance with you.
