Quick fixes for thieves, and long suffering for victims: When guitarists lose their vintage axes

'Round Town

Have you seen this amp, a '57 Fender Bassman? It has been reported stolen.

Nothing is more beautifully weird than the sight of the dance floor at Surfside Sally's (2626 Tanglewood) on weekends. There, mostly middle-aged people of nearly every color mingle and mix and dance the Electric Slide as if they were all related in some strange way. Making this utopia even more unfathomable have been, over the past few months, the live sounds of long-since-thought-of-as-dead '80s and early-'90s bands. Vanilla Ice and A Flock of Seagulls have both performed recently. And scheduled to grace Surrealside Sally's environs on Friday, October 6, is the Knack, they of "My Sharona" fame. This trend is an example of what happens when audiences vote with their dancing feet. For people old enough to remember despising "Ice Ice Baby," it's refreshing and comforting. Like a good John Hughes flick.
