Saturday February 4th
The big to-do of tonight is the bon voyage party for Labretta Suede and the Motel 6 at Lone Wolf in beautfiul Bushwick Brooklyn. Those insane garage rock Kiwi’s are going away on tour for over a whole damn month to their native New Zealand…the city is just about to get a little more quiet and slightly more sane. They are joined in this rock and roll bacchanal by The Naked Heroes and Lovestruck, with Drew Redmond (you again?) spinning greasy rock and soul all night long! Supposedly Lux Interior’s ghost is scheduled for a special guest appearance on the anniversary of his ascension. Hide your mom!
First Saturday’s means the only pure surf rock party going in the entire tri-state, Unsteady Freddie’s Surf Rock Shindig at Otto’s Shrunken Head! Obscure beach punk records in front, rock and roll by The Chillers, Strange But Surf, Commercial Interruption and The WrayCyclers in the back! Never a cover, 9pm kick off time!
The radical chic happening Glamdammit hits it off at it’s new home Grand Victory! Hosted and spun by Michael T and Twig the Wonderkid, it’s your one stop shop for glam, rock anthems and punk for heroes! Live performances tonight by Fucking Bullshit, The Brats, and main man’s own band Michael T and the Vanities at midnight! 9pm hi-kick off time, $8 cover I believe…
The resurgent divey home for freaks, weirdos and revolutionaries, Freddy’s, is celebrating it’s one year anniversary at it’s new location in the south slope of Brooklyn this evening, with a live performance at 11pm by the band that’s been there since the beginning, the Brooklyn by way of Paris ye-ye rockers Les Sans Culottes! No cover for this mad…
DJ C’mon has her weekly battle against Manhattan mediocrity going down in the east village: The Saturday Takeover at Idle Hands is your place to escape stupid radio pop, so run into the arms of her delightful selections of garage, punk, power pop and new bad ass indie shit! No cover, 10pm till close
Buhbleebuhbleep that’s all, Folks!
PUT YOUR GAME FACE ON!
