Their songs are erotic, sensual, stripped-down rhapsodies to longing, love, heartbreak, and secret desires, and tap into musical styles from across the sound spectrum, from flamenco to jazz to punk rock to North African music, anchored by Al Street's lyrical, virtuosic guitar, and Bliss Blood's dreamy, cinematic, and deeply amorous lyrics.
SATURDAY, JUNE 29th
8PM, LIVE MUSIC: Jazz with The Upper Manhattan Collective
11PM, INDIAN ROAD CAFÉ "B" MOVIE NIGHT
HOSTED BY FOZZIE BARE
In Rappin', Mario Van Peebles is John Hood, a con who when released from jail goes back to his neighborhood to find his girl shacked up with a nasty gang-leader named Duane (Charles Flohe). Duane is on the take with a corrupt contractor who plans to tear down Hood's neighborhood and he and his gang serve as ruffian rowdies who help evict the tenants. John Hood will not put up with this nonsense; he throws a community rap session and gets everybody aligned against the bad guys. His rappin' is so ratin' that he (SPOILER ALERT) impresses a record company and wins his gal back.
