After the Final Curtain, Matt Lambros' marvelous photoblog about abandoned theaters, recently did a post about Loew's 46th Street Theatre, a.k.a. the 46th Street Rock Palace, a.k.a. Bananafish Garden.
And a couple of days ago the Boston Phoenix posted an excellent interview with Handsome Dick. Manitoba recently played at the Horseshoe--I've gotta say, I think I enjoyed it more than any previous Dictators show I've seen!
