It’s starting to feel like I only see bands at Tokyo Garden, which is fine. It’s my local, to use hipster speak (see definition 1). The place feels like home, is within walking distance and tends to have cool bands stopping through.
Inferno of Joy: This San Francisco four-piece puts on a … theatrical performance, let’s say. Lots of gyrations. Lots of sweating and jumping around. Lots of animal screams. This is rock and roll revival. Having never seen/heard the band before (other than quick clips on Youtube) I found myself making easy comparisons. This isn’t quite fair to the band, but it’s probably good reference for others.
1. MAKE YOURSELF EXPENDABLE
Laid-back reggae/rockers The Expendables are playing what’s probably the biggest gig of the weekend, tonight at Fulton 55. If you like Slightly Stoopid, you’ll like them. We hear it’s closed to selling out. So don’t slack. [More]
But in the meantime, what did you do this weekend? Fill us in. There were a lot of cool events we missed, but we’d love to hear about ‘em. Did you go to one? Did you try a new restaurant? Ready, set, comment!
