It’s all about the throw-back tunes this week!
It may be cold out there, but do not stay home under your covers — go out and catch some!
We are going to fully disclose where we think you should be on Friday night: at the Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Avenue between 77th and 78th streets) for some rock ’n’ roll covers from Full Disclosure. The trio goes on at 10 pm and promises tunes ranging from the 1960s to the latest chart-toppers.
On Saturday, start your evening at Schnitzel Haus (7319 Fifth Avenue between 73rd and 74th streets) for bratwurst, beer steins, and the Brooklyn band Backtrax (not to be confused with the Long Island cover band of the same name). These locals go on at 9:30 pm with their repertoire of rock tunes from the last 40 years.
Then bundle up and make your way to the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Avenue between 95th and 96th streets) for a heaping helping of Screaming Broccoli, voted the best cover band on Staten Island in 2014) — a distinction that entitles them to leave that bucolic island and keep the Monk rockin’ from 11 pm until 3 am.
But do you yearn for the standards of an older era? Head down to Hunter’s Steak and Ale House (9404 Fourth Avenue between 94th and 95th streets) at 7 pm on Thursday, Jan. 21 to catch Bay Ridge crooner Martin McQuade and pianist Pete Sokolow, who pay a musical tribute to classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer movie soundtracks. The pair has selected tunes from ageless films including “Singing in the Rain,” “The Wizard of Oz,” and “Anchors Aweigh.”
