If you’re anything like me, you bought an iPod or MP3 player because you were sick of carrying CDs everywhere. Also, you probably decided that some albums weren’t worth converting to a digital format, and abandoned the albums you kept around for theme parties, guilty pleasure and attacks of nostalgia sitting in your parents’ basement. If you’re craving some of the heavier music from the 80′s that’s currently covered in a quarter of an inch of dust, then go to St. Jerome’s tomorrow night. Brooklyn Ski Club and Nickels and Dimes bring you the fifth installment of Smell the Glove, a night full of the 80′s hair metal and hard rock. Bands promised on the playlist include: Sex Pistols, Motorhead, KISS, The Cult, etc accompanied by a fog machine. To make sure you can’t feel the whiplash forming as you headbang, the bar will be selling $2 Buds until midnight and giving away free vodka from 2 to 3am. Also, going to St. Jerome’s is way less of a trek than going to your parents’ house.
