Battle of the (Cover) Bands

There's always cool shit to do on Staten Island. But this particular weekend is off the hook!

On Saturday there's not just one but two(!) awesome rock concerts, and we honestly can NOT decide which one to go and see.

First, over at the Dugout Pub it's Slippery When Wet.

I know, right now you're saying, "No way. Slippery When Wet? The best Bon Jovi tribute band in the tri-state area?"

Fuck yeah. That Slippery When Wet. Not those other jerk-offs Bad Medicine.

When these guys play "Dead or Alive" it brings mother fuckers to tears -- TEARS.

So great, right? But wait, there's more.

Over at the Martini, the hands-down most radical place on the North Shore there is a - fukin - BEATLES cover niiiiiight!!

VanDuzer is gonna be off the chain when Staten's super-slacker rock gods The Jazz Funeral perform the first psychedelic rock album ever created, Magical Mystery Tour from THE BEATLES.

I really hope somebody bakes some brownies, if you know what I'm talkin about.

  1. Personally, I'm a big fan of Jon Bovi, the Bon Jovi opposite band.

    If someone was doing a tribute to the Undertones of St. Patrick's Day, I could get down with that. They are after all, Ireland's greatest musical export.

    Or maybe someone should take a cue from Jon Bovi and start 2U for St. Patty's Day. Imagine the songs: "You Always Find What You're Not Looking For," "Without or With Me," "Shame (In The Name of Hate)," "Wednesday Unlacerated Wednesday."
