From Cumbias to Cover Songs: New Thursdays at Pier 23

Categories: Clubs, Music

LouDogTrio.jpg Every Thursday used to be Latin dance night at the Pier 23 nightclub, featuring performers like Jesus Diaz, Roy Obiedo, or Louie Romero's Mazacote. June seems to signal a sea change in the club's pre-weekend programming, however, as the Thursday bands booked in the foreseeable future are all tribute acts. This Thursday (i.e., tonight) stars the Lou Dog Trio, who resurrects the ghost of Brad Nowell with their covers of Sublime; at least their Cinco de Mayo outfits, seen above, provided a little continuity between the old Thursday events. Next Thursday, June 12, gets its gloom on with Japanese Baby and Los Esmiths, tributes to The Cure and The Smiths, respectively. (Sadly, Los Esmiths do not sing en español.) Synth-pop rules the night on Thursday, June 19, with For the Masses channeling Depeche Mode and Erasure-Esque attempting to out-dazzle the original Erasure duo of Andy Bell and Vince Clarke. And, finally, Rock Steady finishes the month with a tribute to No Doubt. July looks to continue the trend with Kinks covers, an '80s cover band, and more TBA. See for updates and info. — J. Graham
