Best Chance for Park Slopers To Avoid the Williamsburg Schlep New York 2002 - SOUTHPAW - CLOSED
Look in the mirror, pal: You're too old to ride the L train. Good thing SOUTHPAW, a huge shiny new rock club, has opened in the former 99-cent store across from the Key Food parking lot. With Maxwell's guy Toddophonic Todd Abramson handling the booking, you'll soon find a reason to check out the tiered lounge areas, wide Bowery Ballroom-style front apron, and puppet-show stage, complete with curtain. Hopefully Todd'll find some acts that can be heard over the roar of the X'ers hooking up at the bar.
