Ladies and gentlemen, if you’re 21 or older, we would like to take you on a wild ride.
A ride to the craziest bar east of the Mississippi. (Um…New Jersey is east of the Mississippi, right? Geography was never our strong suit.)
That’s right…we are headed to Roxy and Dukes in Dunellen, New Jersey on Friday, January 31st. And while there, we are going to open for a bunch of swingin’ hepcats that are guaranteed to get you up on the dancefloor…the GAS HOUSE GORILLAS. That’s right…punk rockabilly is gonna meet acoustic dork-rock for one crazy night.
You might ask what a couple of dorks are doing in such a cool place. Even Roxy and Dukes’ website cover photo looks like it wants to take our lunch money, doesn’t it? Well, you can rest easy, because Roxy and Dukes is as friendly as it gets. They’ve got great beer, wonderful food, and a terrific, inclusive attitude.
Besides, it’s a special night. We’re not only gonna dork-rock out and then dance ourselves silly, we’re gonna celebrate the birthday of a good friend of ours. We’re talking about…CRUSHER!
NO, NO. Not that guy. THIS GUY:
Now THAT is worth celebrating. That there’s Crusher Carmean, the bass player, and we’re celebrating his birthday! So come on out to Dunellen on Friday. It’s gonna be a wonderful night, filled with music, dancing, and laffs, especially considering the other opener is the adult-themed comedy act Otto & George (link NSFW).
Remember: this one’s for the 21 and older crowd. So if that’s you…we’ll see ya in Jersey.
