I spin the tunes. Kryssy gets you drunk on $3 domestic bottled beers. To ask for anything more would just be greedy.
What kind of tunes will you hear tonight at Neat Neat Neat? A bumrush of the familiar and the obscure. Lately I've been digging deep in the rock & roll vaults to come up with some fun surprises, and I think I found a few rarely heard gems to play.
The night focuses on unk, glam, garage, post-punk, and new wave, but ultimately it can be whatever strikes my rock & roll fancy. Stuff like The Damned (from whom the night gets its name), New York Dolls, Ian Dury, 999, Pretenders, Bloc Party, Elastica, The Stooges, Los Beatles, T. Rex, Thin Lizzy, Stevie Wonder, Art Brut, do ya get the idea? If ya don't believe me, peep last month's playlist.
The party starts now! Well, at 10 p.m., but close enough. It's all happening at the true home of punk rock in New York city, Manitoba's.

Thanks to FreeNYC, a fine resource for free and cheap events in the city, for listing the event. Extrawack! shows love, too.
Thanks also for this listing from Terre T. of The Cherry Blossom Clinic, the kick-ass rock & roll show everyone should listen to on Saturdays from 3 to 6 p.m. on WFMU. You can listen to Terre's show anytime you want on the internet, thanks to the streaming archives.
Those of you on the mainland can catch me spinning this Saturday, February 4, at 10 p.m. at The Goldhawk.
And a hearty thank you to everyone who read and commented on my Favorite Music Of 2005 lists. For me, the best part about making and publishing those lists are the conversations they start and the music that others prompt me to check out based on them.
In more "best of" news, The Village Voice Pazz & Jop results are up. They were nice enough to print one pithy sentence I wrote about Hoboken's most famous current resident in one of the commentary sections (page 84 in the print edition). And for a fascinating Jersey-based survey with a smaller sample size—but at more than one-seventh the size of the ever-growing Pazz & Jop population this year, not so small anymore—read Tris McCall's Critics Poll.
