Cover mash-ups and dirty talk

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
hitlist Adam Gimbel

Sometimes, under the fog of vodka and strobe lights, we come up with ideas that we swear are absolute genius. Like my friend Ramon’s idea for a leftover-food swap, where you tell people online what restaurant leftovers you have and see if someone wants to trade for different leftovers.

Adam Gimbel is that kind of guy, only he comes up with ideas for wacky cover bands while completely sober. He already fronts a Weezer cover band called Geezer, in which all band members dress like octogenarians, handing out Werther’s Originals and faking heart attacks on stage. This is his gift. His latest idea is Stones N’ Roses, which mashes up songs by metal gods Guns N’ Roses and Britpop icons The Stone Roses. The music will be mashed on Friday, Sept. 21, at Whistle Stop Bar (2236 Fern St. in South Park). Do the Axl snake move on the dance floor as Gimbel and his cohorts wail. If you lean toward the Britpop side, you’re in luck because the show is part of F#@cking in the Bushes, the Whistle’s night dedicated to Oasis, Blur, The Charlatans and other kings of British rock with DJs Daniel Sant and Rob Moran.

Speaking of unusual gifts, ever heard of someone beat-boxing while playing the cello to create dope-dancey beats? Sounds crazy, but it’s true. Head to Analog (801 Fifth Ave., Downtown) on Friday, Sept. 21, to check out Cello Joe, who’s touted on Analog’s website as “the baddest beat boxing cellist around.” This may be a “you have to see it to believe it” situation.

Sometimes it’s not great/ stupid ideas we come up with while drunk. Sometimes we just say things we hope to never remember. For that kind of night, head to El Dorado (1030 Broadway, Downtown) on Saturday, Sept. 22, for Dirty Talk. DJs Gabe Vega, Adam Salter and Huge Euge will spin the party jams as you put your foot in your mouth while talking to the babe who’s sidled up to the bar. The embarrassment might sting worse than a bad case of herpes, but if you’re lucky, you might black out.
