Sally Can't Dance: A Tribute to The Cramps at The Bowery Electric(show info // tickets)
A bunch of fine peeps (including Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Martin Rev, Jesse Malin and Eugene Hutz of Gogol Bordello) play tribute to The Cramps: one of the sickest bands to ever roll around in the glorious muck that is the music game.
A bunch of DJ's from the DFA crew will be spinning some spooky sick sounds. Will there be special live appearances, as well? There will be! Will one of the secret guests be LCD Soundsystem? IT NEVER IS.
Two Gramercy shows in two nights for these legendary English punks. If you don't know their 1979 classic album "Machine Gun Etiquette" yet go ahead and blast it and start the first day of the rest of your punk LYF.
Big Ups (as Rage Against The Machine) + Two Inch Astronaut (as Third Eye Blind) + Fern Mayo (as Yeah Yeah Yeahs) at Shea Stadium (show info // tickets)
This is going to be a real fun one for the punks and the people who love them. Big Ups as Rage Against the Machine. Two Inch Astronaut as Third Eye Blind. Fern Mayo as Yeah Yeah Yeahs. If you've ever wanted something else to get you through this semi-charmed kind of life I highly suggest you get your dressed up ass to Shea Stadium tonight.
Go see one of the loudest bands in worlds (the regular world & the upside down one) in the new BK Night Bazaar space in Greenpoint. Bring earplugs and nobody gets hurt.
