Say you’re on a first date and want to be impressive. Be a little spontaneous and bring that lucky human to Gorbals on a Thursday night, where you’ll be given the gift of live Balkan, folk dance music from Petrojvic Blasting Company [a delightfully refreshing ensemble that steers away from the homogenous style most LA bands seem stuck in]. Order a nice ale on tap and tasty vittles for you and your date to snack on while you enjoy the music. As an added treat, regulars tend to really cut a rug to their sounds, so you get to watch the musicians perform as well as watch dancers shake it!
So, let’s recap why you should go to Gorbals on a Thursday night:
- Petrojvic Blasting Company performs for free
- Regulars are pretty good at cutting a rug
- Decent drinks, including some tasty beers on tap
- Extremely tasty vittles
Oh yeah, and once a month [2nd Thursday of the month], it also falls on the same night as Art Walk, which means you can get a heaping dose of culture in one night!
