Smell the Glove at St. Jerome’s

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
