HEARTBREAKER OF GLASS
Cathy Cervenka knows her power ballads. The self-proclaimed 80s-obsessed founder of Cathyland, a rock tribute collective, has produced such greatness as Madonnathon and an ode to U2. Tonight, Cervenka headlines her Classic Album Night by performing Pat Benatars definitive 1980 arena-rock album, Crimes of Passion. Then alt-rock group the Pretty Babies do Blondies 1978 hit record Parallel Lines. Lest that be too much girl power for one evening, New Yorks Finest take on the Polices 1978 Outlandos DAmour, to remind everyone that before the seven-hour yogic sex sessions and before he lived in a castle, Sting was once cool.
