As you kick back with your brand new copy of City Paper today, please note a crucial listings correction:
This Saturday, the 15th, The New Yinzer is throwing a sock hop. It is, as the promotional material notes, not unlike the type of dance that Porky Chedwick or Mad Mike used to throw. Back in the day. However, Porky Chedwick and Mad Mike will not, in fact, be playing records at this event. That would, of course, be a big deal. Not that the New Yinzer party isn't a big deal, but Porky and Mad Mike spinning at the same event, at the Brillobox, would be something quite notable. That is not happening.
Our listing erroneously states that it is. Wires were crossed, mistakes were made, things were glossed over in proofing, mea culpa.
The rest of the listing is correct: local garagey rockers The Whips, Thee Starry Eyes, The Dirty Charms, and Moldies & Monsters are playing live, and Zombo, DJ Sinister, Electric Slim and Miscellaneous G all spin records. As far as we know, Pork Torkington will not. But you can always hold out hope.
