Steve Cataldo had some words for a club owner on FB....he sounds revved up and raddy to rock, people. "OH, the cat who owns the Spotlight Tavern, the club has an unlisted phone # can you dig that?, what a MORON! Everyone is asking me if the gig is still on , and it certainly is. By the time we finish our set, the guy will never need a phone, cause he will be deaf as a Carp!"
