The Strokes played some of their first gigs at LES mainstay Arlene’s Grocery, so you can take comfort in the fact that you’re rocking out where Jules & Co. had some of their earliest drunken shows. Just make sure you bring it—cuts by Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC and other tried-and-true rock staples (the more anthemic, the better) require some serious wailing. The free Monday-night shows have the wildest crowds, and in true rock-star fashion, ridiculous antics like stripping and playing air guitar are encouraged.
