TONIGHT: The Bangover at the Crosby
OK, this is cool. We all know the usual DJ nights: crappy current hip-hop tunes, people you wouldn't normally want to be seen in public with grinding on the dance floor. Then came hipper, more "indie" DJ nights, where you'd be more liable to hear Justice or LCD Soundsystem. That's all well and good, but second Wednesdays at the Crosby in downtown Santa Ana are taking it to another, much harder, darker, eviler, and generally more badass level with "Bangover."
It's pretty much how it sounds: Metallica, Megadeth, Maiden, Sabbath, Anthrax, Pantera. As someone who pays pretty close attention to these things, I've never heard of another bar night going in this direction (not counting cheesy hair metal cover bands), so this sounds like a treat. Free entry, starting at 9. Rawk.
