    Excuse me for applying a broad brush to the geographic boundaries of Nippertown – I saw Syracuse’s seventies sensation The Flashcubes at Kenny’s Castaways over the weekend, where they played as part of the International Pop Overthrow festival. They were fantastic, playing great versions of Got No Mind, Christi Girl, and others. Among the many bands characterized as blending the best of pop with the best of punk, The Flashcubes are one of the very few who deserve the description. The crowd loved ’em – they were the only band to get an encore, a rip-roaring cover of In The City.
