When we first brought word that rockers Bobby Drake (The Hold Steady, w/o.), Frank Bevan (w/o.), Rob Pope (Spoon), Eric Odness (The Wanted, Primitive Weapons) were teaming up to open a Greenpoint bar that nodded to the neighborhood joints of Minneapolis, there were plenty of demands from B+B readers.
