On Friday 15 bands showed up to Nietzsche’s in Allentown to rip the joint up with their own renditions of classic Rolling Stones tunes.

From punk to rock ‘n fn’ roll, the stage was chaotic as each band stepped up to play their short set of Stones songs. Setlists ranged from hand clapping anthems like “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” to soulful but rockin tunes like “Ventilator Blues” and “Monkey Man.” Some bands got a little extra time and spent it improvising an extra song or letting loose on a fall back classic (“Honky Tonk Women” was played four times, each time drastically different than the last). The climax of the night came when Dead Flowers took the stage at around 12:30pm, channeling Mick Jagger’s swagger to belt out five classic Stones cuts including “Love Is Strong” and “Hand of Fate.” The crowd showed up ready to drink and dance the night away.
