If you're in the neighborhood

Tonight at the Miramar Theatre on Oakland Ave. just south of Locust, there's a Battle of the Bands, starting around 6 p.m.

I have some kids (ages 11-14) that I've been coaching* for a few months who are performing as one of the warm-up acts. They'll be doing Come Together, You Can't Do That, Money, and Suffragette City. They're pretty darn good, and pretty entertaining too.

This is their latest, pre-punk incarnation. At their last highly acclaimed public appearance, they did Uncontrollable Urge, I Don't Wanna Go Down To The Basement, Psycho Killer, Pump It Up, and Paper (the lesser known Talking Heads number).

* As one of them put it, Tommy is our guru and we are his grasshoppers. (Grasshoppers on sucrose, that is.)
