This night, which might originally be construed as a New York Dolls cover band taking the stage at a baseball field, is one big misnomer. Instead, BK recording studio/all ages space Shea Stadium hosts an all-sorts bill, featuring band names both brilliant (Mother Courage, Bad Teeth), unmemorable (Nat Brower, Shapes), and inscrutable (Slothrust?). Among the acts, ironic Autotune indebted to Brecht, boy/girl glam rock, and the scorching vocals of a lady bluesmith inspired by Whitney's downfall. Guess the venue takes heed from its namesake, which hosted both the Beatles and the Clash.
