Remember when Wednesday was only memorable because it wasn't Monday? Well, party promoter extraordinaire/musician/DJ Tuesdae and The Cutting Room are adding some much needed excitement to this underappreciated day with a new weekly night that celebrates the wild world of rock.

Brent X Mendoza checked out the inaugural event last week (April 6) and spotted drummer Samantha Maloney (Chelsea Girls, Hole, Motley Crue), photographer Genie Sanchez and a crowd of fans looking for a night of good old rock n' roll.

The party kicks off at 9 p.m. on Wednesday nights. Entrance is free. The Cutting Room is located in The Grafton hotel.
