Rock and a hard place


by Mary Kunz

The Hard Rock Cafe always did give us that slimy feeling. And we're even less of a fan now that we've seen the schedule of what band plays at what franchise on New Year's Eve. Here's the deal: San Francisco gets Cheap Trick. Miami gets Sister Hazel. Honolulu gets Third Eye Blind. And we got...a rock. OK, we got Moxy Fruvous. Come on! They play here all the time! Well, at least we know now exactly where Niagara Falls, N.Y., ranks in the Hard Rock hierarchy. To elaborate, the Nixons are in Chicago, Creed is in Baltimore, and even the Goo Goo Dolls snub us, decamping to New Orleans. What can we say? Lance Diamond at the Elmwood Lounge is looking better by the second.
