The Deal: Free Beer
The Place: 14 Steuben Street
The Price: $10
The Details: A loft party in BK with a bunch of bands (Royal Chains, Eytan and the Embassy, Teletxtile, and Kenton De Angeli). I don't know much about the bands but there will also be a pinata to smash and free beer. Keep in mind though, at some point there will be spoken word, which ALWAYS sucks.

Ride The Snake

The Deal: Open Bar 8-9:30pm
The Place: 1089 Broadway
The Price: $10
The Details: After getting shutdown last night the Bushwick kids are giving it another go, this time a little closer to home. Come out and get crazy in an "unfinished construction site" (wait, isn't 1089 Broadway the Bodega?) with Dirty Finger, Zack Shadetek and The Mr. Move. There are also some surprise guests, whatever that means. Don't hang out outside and be little peckerheads, that's what got the party shutdown last night.

RethinkPopMusic Presents

The Deal: Well, Bud/Bud Lite Open Bar 7:30-9:30
The Place: Crash Mansion
The Price: $5 w/ RSVP: www.RPM-RSVP.com
The Details: A bunch of bands you definitely haven't heard of are playing at Crash Mansion, so it's sorta like every other night at Crash I guess. The reason it might be worth $5 is the 2-hour open bar. Yeah sure, it's an early one but at least you'll be home pissing your bed before midnight.

Broken Teeth
