Rock hangover-ready

January 21, Cherry Bomb

Thursday’s long been the new Friday. It’s a night to let loose even if you have to drag yourself into the office the next morning with a rock ’n’ roll hangover, complete with messed-up hair and smudgy eyeliner.

Get that feeling Thursday, January 21, when Ann Tindall—a.k.a. DJ Annimal—kicks off Cherry Bomb, a weekly, vinyl-only deejay night at the Hideway Bar & Grill.

Tindall’s deejay cred goes back to at least the early aughts when she launched a glam rock night at Old Ironsides with Shaun Slaughter and Roger Carpio. Back then, though, it was a little more Bon Jovi than, say, Suzi Quatro, MC5 (pictured) or the Stooges.

Now she’s back with the intent to pull out the best and rarest platters—think “junkshop glam, power pop, proto-punk and early punk,” she says.

“I always wanted to play rare rock vinyl only … and have been collecting records before and since with a huge spike in my collection, thanks to Discogs and better international exchange rates,” she adds. “No more crates of dirty, scratched, dollar bin records scrapped together into a set. I don’t wanna hear that shit and you shouldn’t either.” Word. Free, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., Hideway Bar & Grill, 2565 Franklin Boulevard;
