These assholes better bring chips and dip to this alleged party or else I’m gonna cry cry cry.
Hey Hey! It’s Captain Heartlock, your Boy About Town with your “cool shit to do” list between now and the weekend…
It’s old news now that according to some moonbat Christian doomsdayers, THIS IS THE LAST WEEK OF YOUR LIFE. Of LIFE IN GENERAL. Judgement!Â The world will end on Saturday the 21st. If there’s any incentive to go out and raise a ruckus of apocalyptic proportions, THIS IS IT. Not that YOU ever needed any excuses to freak out, but here’s your free pass. I’d discourage mass looting and window smashing, though: I don’t think the fuzz are hip to this…
Tuesday May 17th
Start your evening right and tight with Phast Phreddie and his new party Crepuscule With Boogaloo at swank Park Slope area drinkspot The Fifth Estate (506 5th Avenue, Brooklyn NY). From 7pm till about 10 drop by for happy hour specials and spaced out lounge sounds and modernistic mood music…FREE!
White Mystery: Power Glove
From there, make your way to Northern Coolyville (or Williamsburg, as the land barons call it these days) for the first of a week of shows featuring Chicago’s heroes of fuzz tectonics and Rickenbacker badness, White Mystery! Find them at Glasslands Gallery where they’re supported by Racoon Fighter, The Minks and Shadowbox.
After that hubbub stumble towards Greenpoint Brooklyn, to the tippy tip of McCarren Park, to Bar Matchless for Hot Dog!, the party where a bunch of your favorite mod/garage punk/psych DJ’s spin music for a bunch of near belligerent drunk college kids who could probably care less, but it’s FINE because you’re almost broke, it’s FREE, and it’s 2-for-1 drinks all night, and the joint has really boss french fries for soaking up well vodka. KABOOM.
Wednesday May 18th
It’s another fantastic edition of Turtleneck, the party that celebrates space lounge, spy music and mondo exploitation sounds, as presented by CopyCat’s own DJ Xerox and his partner, the intergalactic superstar producer Ursula 1000. Besides their fantastic music selections they have curated a killer lineup of apropo live acts tonight in the form of a rare NYC appearance the Kabuki faced surf rock superheroes Daikaiju, the amazing, cinematic sounds of Morricone Youth and the bearded, spaghetti surf fury of El Muchacho. A solid, near unbeatable lineup that will cost you ZERO dollars starts at 9pm at Otto’s Shrunken Head.
Daikaiju – Zombie Harem
On the DJ FRONT:
New York Night Train is happening at Motor City tonight, with Alix Brown (former Golden Triangle girl) and Psychedelic Sex Panther filling in for Jonathan Toubin while he’s on a tear through the states. 11pm till close at Motor City.
Mr. Fine Wine spins the finest ’45s of the sixties soul and R&B variety at his weekly party at Botanica, fifteen years strong and counting! 10pm till around 2…
Thursday May 17th
A carpetbaggers bundle full of live rock action tonight….
First off! The Underclass Revue presents a showcase at LES scuzzy rock and roll dive bar Local 269, with Memphis Tennesee’s Angel Sluts as headliners and guests of honor! They are supported by local fuckers The Horehound, The Othermen, Dead Tricks, Crazy and the Brains and Nervous Assistant! This starts early at 7pm…only$7 dollars for almost as many bands with some crazy ass drink specials to get you revved up…
Speaking of The Othermen, those fuzzed up garage rock party beasts, they’re hopping in a cab as soon as they’re done with their set and heading to Williamsburg’s Public Assembly where they’ll be playing right before White Mystery! This loud and stellar Lady Bree Production kicks off at 9pm courtesy of one man powerhouse Brownbird Rudy Relic, American Sun and has The Psyched performing after the Chicago ginger kids…$8 dollar cover.
Crash Mansion (which I understand has been renamed Soiree…whatever! A rose by any other name…)(le) poisson rouge in the West Village hosts A Rockin’ Benefit for Japan! Presented by the fine people of Rebel Night and Dances of Vice, Eddie Clendening and The Blue Ribbon Boys (from the Broadway show Million Dollar Quartet), NYC Rockabilly band Rhythm Bound and the one and only Baxx SiSi’s tear it up, with 100% of proceeds going to The Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. Rebel Night DJ’s Sei and Jun keep it a party, while Hula Hoop Harlot Melissa Anne wows the senses with her ring swinging talents! Do good by doing bad – advance tickets are already sold out but there may still be some at the door for $15…
That’s ALOT of trouble to get into before a Friday and this weekend promises to be a DOOZY, what with Nobunny in town for Metropolis Fest II, A crazyÂ DEVA, Twin Guns and Apehangers house party in Bushwick and THE LAST SUBWAY SOUL CLUB EVER!!!!…Shimmy will have you covered with all that nonsense on Friday afternoon.
