Gabriel The Marine/ Hotel Of The Laughing Tree/ Republic of Wolves @ Party Expo in Brooklyn *(Friday Nov. 5th [NOT Saturday the 6th!])

If you were to take a quick look at my previous weekend suggestions a few trends would arise in terms of what I find entertaining.  One of the most common would be DIY shows in dungeon-esque basements or seedy warehouses and another would be Gabriel The Marine.

This saturday at Party Expo in Bushwick, you can experience both.  Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect.

The Music – Gabriel The Marine is an indie rock act in the vein of Ra Ra Riot.  I’ve noted several times that I hold them atop my list of bands restoring my faith in the Long Island music scene.  They will be joined by three other awesome bands currently breaking out of Long Island.

The Venue – Party Expo is a Wu Tang approved DIY spot in Bushwick that seems to have as many visits from the cops as it does concert goers.  However, despite having nights occasionally shut down the venue still manages a steady stream of awesome shows. I would most compare Party Expo to Death By Audio in Williamsburg, however DBA does have a major one up on Party Expo; a liquor license.  Don’t let the fact that Party Expo shows are dry for the time being stop you from going Saturday though, Beauty Bar is two doors down, and the venue allows re-entry.  This makes it pretty easy to slip out between bands for a beer and a shot…or two.

Conclusion – If it’s good enough for Raekwon, it’s good enough for me.  Let’s go!
