HANK'S! HANK'S! HANK'S!
Located beneef the colostomy sack of the greatest city on earth, we've been
wanting to play HANK'S SALOON quite a bit....quite a bit, indeed.
A gritty-cool sudspit wif all the charm of a spent condom, this'll be our
first Brooklyn gig in 2 years. Chris used to live on this block in the
early 80's when this establishment was known as "The Doray Tavern - Where
good friends meet"(!?!)...most of the good friends then were toothless,
knife-wielding crackheads from the city-sponsored methadone hotel next door
drooling alongside stubbly, old timer, Bukowskiesque alkies who'd arrive at
noon wif their horseracing forms.
Altho almost logistically impossible, legend has it that Jimmy Swaggart once
cruised hookers there. That's all Chris needed to hear. 20+ years later,
the frustrating guitarist still bicyles by on weekends for his afternoon
Bloody Mary(s) and free BBQ on the Lord's Day. Hairy women and
undeodorized "men" make this a fashionable hangout.
HANK'S is 1 block away from the 2,3,4,5,N,R,Q,LIRR trains at the Atlantic
Ave & Pacific Street subway stations. We're supposed to start around 9:30
ish, but we'd guess that'll be closer to 10 and we'll be playing 60 minnits
or so. We doubt you'll need ID here and would appreciate it if you brought
Toilet report:.....errrh, it'd be better if you didn't know.
FRIDAY.....MAY 26......9:30/10:00....60 Minnit set
