Every Thursday at 10 p.m., a mob of bearded gearheads, inked-up burlesque babes, and shaved-skull Oi! boys descends on the Electric Pickle with dangerously mixed intentions. Guest DJs will drop weird and wild wax (i.e., Johnny Cash, the Troggs, and King Khan), while live acts, such as past performers Diablo Dimes and Celine & the Hellbillies, light up the cabaret stage. And with three-dollar bottles of Red Stripe, theres likely to be dirty dancing followed by messy make-outs in the restrooms. But really, can a party be called a party without spilling beer and swapping spit?
