Oscars but should have, plays

just do it all. One of them, virtuoso
guitarist, blues and jazzman, rocker,
songwriter, and entertainer David
Bromberg brings his diverse act

Cult classic A Boy and His
Dog plays tonight at the Michigan

talking dog. Don finds the food and
the mutt sniffs out women for his
WEDNESDAY: Tonight is

tain music group Sukay performs

the countries that used to form the

we had to mention it, this concert
promises to be "marked by vivid,
exciting rhythms and melodies."
And if you're feeling mellow and
want to check out a flick, one of
last years best, and the other movie
that didn't win all the Oscars but
should have, Oliver Stone's Sal -
