Cock Lorge at Pianos

Written by Marin Resnick on . Posted in Music, Posts.


This summer, come see Cock Lorge’s big, blue…eyes as he wails out on stage in Thank Cock it’s Tuesday. Inspired by musicians such as the Clash, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan, Cock mixes up the show with a bit of reggae, comedy and good rhythm.

Mr. Lorge enters the stage with the crowd screamin, “Cock! Cock! Cock!” As he plays the harmonica, he bellows out with great melody, Lift My Balls/Leave My Place. My ears perk up as he spouts more poetry. Soon, Cock switches to a reggae beat. When he’s all Dylaned out, he asks Shayna Ferm to come up and chirp with him for her first stage performance. Shyly, she performs a duet with Cock appropriately titled “Cock in Pussy”—a song I didn’t get out of my head for a week. As Shayna gracefully exits the stage, Shockwave comes on, making Pac Man-type sounds. I feel like I’m riding on Space Mountain as they sing, They’re Brunettes But Their Bushes Are Blond.

The irony in all of this is that Cock is a very happily married guy with two adorable kids who dig their Dad’s music. Check out what his fans—underage and over the hill alike—find worthy of adoring this Tuesday at Pianos, 158 Ludlow at Stanton, 212-505-3733, 8 p.m., $5. Joining Cock will be Andres du Bouchet, Carla Rhodes, Jessica Delfino, Ionia, Shayna Ferm and The War Eagles.
