New York Dolls at the House of Blues

Were we expecting too much from a band that lost three-fifths of its soul when Thunders, Jerry Nolan and Arthur Kane went to the big Max's Kansas City in the sky? Perhaps, because all we got out of the New York Dolls' performance at the House of Blues last night was an hour-long set of sporadic and confounding re-workings of their bedrock material, and a whole helluva lot of middle-of-the-road bar rock from two dimming heroes and some rag-tag session men.
