Flesh Goes Topless with Alcohol
Starting today, San Bernardino's Flesh Club will revise its name and its carnal menu, giving up nude dancers for the right to sell cheeseburgers and beer.

Switchblade Kitty at the Roxy
I'm at the Roxy to see Switchblade Kitty. A throwback to the best of the punk era, these four winsome lasses and their four-piece backing band.
