We’re not sure what’s going on, but let’s put it this way: the weekend simply didn’t end when it was supposed to this time.Â On this past Monday night there was a rager of such classic proportions at Don Pedro, half the attending crowd ‘forgot’ to go to work the next day.
The few who did, well, they regretted it!
We seem to be looking at a repeat as the action around town tonight looks a lot more fun that quite a few Saturdays we’ve seen pass by us in recent weeks.Â So if you’re able-bodied, young (at heart) and possibly just a little stupid (it helps!), here’s your game plan:
Starting early, you’ll find New Jersey’s own Demands doing an outdoor set at the Groove on Grove series by the Grove Street PATH station in Jersey City.Â It gets under way about 6PM and is free.
Later on, there’s three live choices:
- Black Market Bombshell, who have an agreeably punky sound, open a show at Local 269 Bar.Â The band features Kymber Lee (ex-Jadewalkers) on drums and vocals. FREE
- Memphis’s Jack Oblivian shows up for another blink-and-you-miss-it appearance in NYC, this time doing his own country-tinged rock at Brooklyn’s Southpaw…Â $10
- And, over at Otto’s Shrunken Head, it’s another After-After party for the Rebel Weekender featuring the Stompin Riff Raffs‘ last performance here in the US before their return to Japan, plus the more-than-able support of the Back CCs, Love-Struck and Siberians.Â DJing provided by the Rebel Night DJs.Â Doors supposedly at 7, I’d guess first band around 8:15.Â Check out the photos from Monday night’s rager at Don Pedro by Jeff Cuyubamba here– can you resist the call? Can your liver? FREE
But that’s not all!
Mr Fine Wine does his usual soul bit at Botanica. FREE *and*
DJ Glamourpuss does her thing at St. Jerome’s while Ashlee pours the drinks. FREE
NOTHING! That’s right. There’s NOTHING on the calendar.Â If you’ve got something, leave a comment.Â I guess after the longest weekend ever, even NYC rockers need a day of rest…
