DJ VINCE NEILSTEIN BACK AT IT AGAIN THIS FRIDAY (TOMORROW!)
Gary Suarez isn’t the only MS staffer allowed to hastily swap cables between two iPods while New York City’s metal elite get their post-work-week happy hour drink on; this Friday (tomorrow!), February 4th, DJ Vince Neilstein will be clicking the ones and twos at Idle Hands Bar from 7 to 10pm.
Idle Hands boasts the slogan “Bourbon. Beer. Rock.” which should be enough to sell you on the bar’s general awesomeness; where else in Manhattan can you sip a fine glass of Jefferson Reserve whilst jamming to the grooves of Meshuggah? Nowhere; nowhere at all, I tell you. You also never know who’s gonna show up at Idle Hands; just in the last week alone I’ve seen members of Charred Walls of the Damned, Coheed & Cambria and God Forbid palling around, and it’s become a go-to after-show hang for touring metal bands playing NYC.
So join me during happy hour tomorrow, from 7-10pm, as I provide you with the opportunity to do just that. There will be some happy hour specials TBA, but those usually end at 8 so get there early.
Idle Hands is at 25 Avenue B (between 2nd and 3rd streets), located downstairs through a separate entrance under the very fratty Billy Hurricane’s.
