This is no joke — on April Fool’s Day, a Bee Gees all-metal tribute band will rock your socks off.
On April 1, the band Tragedy brings bright-white Spandex, satin scarves, carpet-like chest hair and such Bee Gees hits as “Staying Alive,” “Jive Talkin’” and “How Deep Is Your Love” cranked up to 11 at Brooklyn Bowl in Wililamsburg.
“The songs are done up in such rockin’ metal fashion that you’ll never again be able to hear disco music again without banging your head,” said Jake Szufnarowski, aka Barry Glibb.
This being April Fool’s Day, the band is sure to have a few surprises in store, such as metal tributes to other disco icons like Donna Summer. Or maybe not.
“How could we not have some crazy s— planned?” said Szufnarowski. “Or maybe our big April Fool’s gag is not having one at all. How ironic would that be? In Williamsburg, no less.”
Tragedy at Brooklyn Bowl [61 Wythe Ave. between N. 11th and N. 12th streets in Williamsburg, (718) 963-3369], April 1 at 8 pm. Tickets $8. For info, visit www.brooklynbowl.com.
