Red Hook this Weekend

Okay, not really a post 'about' anything, but as best as I can do with this weekend's Red Hook Happenings:

First of all I assume there will be Karaoke throughout the weekend at Hope & Anchor. It seems like there is always karaoke at Hope & Anchor.

There is a show at the Diesel Gallery -

Diesel Gallery -- 242 Van Brunt Street
Recovering Joy: a 2 artist exhibit with Alexandra Corbin and Joshua Kibuka
Opens Fri, Dec 10 7 - 10:30 pm with performances

There's music at the Hook on Commerce Street -
The Hook, 18 Commerce St.
December 10 Friday
Midnight: Tangerine
11pm: The Ordinary
10pm: The Dopes

I've never heard of any of them, but according to the Hook newsletter / e-mail Tangerine is from Pittsburgh and maybe comprable to Pink Floyd. Hmmm... Also according to the Hook e-mail, the Ordinary is composed of waiters. And the Dopes are reuniting after 5 long years apart...

The Hook is also hosting 'The Fourth Annual Russian Rock in America Festival' on December 11 and 12 Saturday and Sunday. This may potentially be very far out. The the Hook's website will have more details and links.

Later this week (December 15 Wednesday) they have a blues thing going on: "Blue Note/Manhattan Records Holiday Cavalcade" which might be interesting.

Last weekend Lilly's had a frickin' amazing Led Zeplin tribute band "Hammer of the Gods". I'm not much of a Led Zeplin fan, but credit where credit is due. These guys were committed to their Rock.

Of course there are the regular Red Hook happenings... the Old Pioneer and Bait and Tackle, as well as Sonny's. I think there is a reading this weekend at Sonny's, but I'm not certain. I'm also pretty certain that there is live music at the Liberty Heights Tap Room, but I don't recall the name of the band, or when it is... try their website (Liberty Heights Tap Room) and give them a call

So, best as I can see, that's Red Hook for this weekend.
