Have you RSVPed yet?
It is “strictly required”
and strictly enforced by
a one-eyed gorilla bouncer
with bad teeth.
Over in Brooklyn, the Rev. Vince Anderson and His Love Choir continue their Monday evening residency at Union Pool. Starts at 11pm, also no cover, and what it lacks in exclamation points it will surely make up for in fervor.
Tonight’s special is… Hot Dog! (same special we had last week) at Bar Matchless. Featuring DJs spinning Rock-n-Roll, 50′s and 60′s R’n'B, Soul, Funk, Garage Rock, Punk, and pretty much whatever they want because they are unstoppable! No cover, 2-for-1 drinks all night, from 8 ’till late.
Not its usual week or its usual music, CopyCat hosts a night of Sesame Street covers (!!!) with bands Whooping Crane, Anna Copa Cabanna and the MG5, and Madame Robot and the Lust Brigade. With DJ Xerox and his clone (unconfirmed) DJ Larry Red spinning cover songs until bedtime. Plus: furry costumes, special cupcakes (no, not that kind), and even more surprises in store (just not from eating the cupcakes). The cover is not one of them: it’s free.
Wednesday night is DJ night in NYC. DJ Reverend Vince spins Soul, Gospel and R&B over at Savalas in Brooklyn. In Manhattan at Motor City Bar it is time for New York Night Train Wednesdays, where guest DJs play punk/rock/hard stuff all night. Then of course there’s Botanica where Mr. Fine Wine will spin his favorite Soul grooves. Hell, they even got two of ‘em at CopyCat. All of these DJ nights are free.
One big show tonight: Jack Oblivian and The Tennessee Tearjerkers along with Mannequin Men at Bruar Falls. Free, but you must RSVP. Anyone else feel like they might just be going to this one? Yeah, me too.
This episode of GPNYC is brought to you by the number zero, which is how much every single show and DJ night costs this week. Nice!Google+ Tags: Anna Copa Cabanna, charly manson, Copycat, Des Roar, jack oblivian, Madam Robot and the Lust Brigade, mannequin men, the rats, Whooping Crane
