    Suburban Renewal - Pavement vs. Poison in the burbs

    Night Crawler

    The warmth of a Tuesday night in spring and the promise of never-before-seen "sexploitation" has brought all the would-be hooligans out of hiding. A group of six or seven gathers outside the Transmission Theater, checking out the broads and flicking ...

    Spanish Fly Sly and savvy, NYC trio Spanish Fly combines "high art" virtuosity with goofball aesthetics. Steven Bernstein (trumpet), Marcus Rojas (tuba), and Tronzo (guitar) each have a signature sound that gets them lots of calls for uptown gigs...
