CATHOLIC GIRLS
PARTY LIGHTSBURNING RED SUN

"Donning traditional uniforms of plaid, The Catholic Girls set the music scene on fire in the ’80s. Utilizing Catholicism laced props, they were the first to come out decked in rosary beads, crosses and even a St. Sebastian medallion, using the shock and awe of good girls gone bad long before Madonna saw the light. It is alleged that the Archdiocese of Rhode Island banned the group from playing in his state because he deemed the band sacrilegious with the song, "God Made You For Me," off of their 1982 debut LP. His major discontent was that the song was an ode to god being a woman." -The Aquarian

Brooklyn Latin Soul!


FULASOYOTOCO
SAN SIMÓN

Funky. Latin. Soul. Coming from and inspired by the five boroughs of New York City, Fulaso is an 11-piece party band spanning the genres of funk, boogaloo, and soul with a Latin edge. This bi-lingual and multi-cultural collaboration, led by the sensational Erica Ramos, brings exceptional energy, love and soul to every performance. For those who love to groove, dance, and boogaloo... "Cuidao! Fulaso viene guarachando!"

San Simón is an Afro-Latin driven septet influenced by raw soul, jazz improvisation and catchy pop songwriting stirred into an intoxicating brew of rhythm and song designed to keep you dancing. The group formed in late 2013 when guitarist/composer Evan Ubiera sought like minds that would push his vision to new heights, creating a dynamic and lively groove that nods to the past while remaining aware of the present. NY-based San Simón features a collective of musicians with backgrounds in genres as diverse as jazz, soul, neosoul, salsa, Afro-Caribbean folk and rock.

Yotoco is the incarnation of a musical love triangle between Umoja Orchestra, Bioritmo and Cumbiagra. They play a sensual, charismatic melange of Salsa, Rumba, and Cumbia. The group is symbiotically composed of Gabo Tomasini (Skins and bells) Natalia Perez (Güiro and voice) Jules Belmont (Guitar) and Sebastian Lopez (Bass). The group seeks a musical exploration of the human condition in the anthroposcene through the use of harmony, psychodelia, and latin roots rhythms.

Wild Ways


Uncle Leon And the Alibis return once again to the place their our birth, Hank's Saloon, for a night of classic country cover songs. Join the band as they drunkenly butcher the back-catalogs of such legendary performers as Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson. You won't hear any Luke Bryan or Brooks and Dunn at this party. And none of that Mumford and Sons bullshit either. Just a whole lot of lowdown, gritty, tear-in-your-beer, old-school honky-tonk, the way the good lord (and Hank) intended it.

Uncle Leon’s Honky-Tonk Relapse


Starting in April, for one night each month, Hank’s Saloon will once again be NYC’s epicenter of all things honky-tonk, thanks to Brooklyn-based "cow-punk" band Uncle Leon And The Alibis.

The band, which got its start at Hank’s nearly a decade ago and, more recently, chose the bar as the setting for their beer-fueled "Wild Ways" video, has announced a new monthly event: Uncle Leon’s Honky-Tonk Relapse. The event, held on the last Thursday of each month, promises two live sets of "classic country" covers, drawn from the back-catalogs of such legends as Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson. In the words of singer and organizer Uncle Leon, "You won’t hear any Luke Bryan or Brooks & Dunn at this party. And none of that Mumford and Sons bullshit either. Just a whole lot of lowdown, gritty, tear-in-your-beer, old-school honky-tonk, the way the good lord (and Hank) intended it."

The first Honky-Tonk Relapse is Thursday, April 30th at 9PM, at Hank's Saloon, 46 Third Avenue in Brooklyn. Admission is free.
