The Carry Nation is the local duo of DJ Nita and Will Automagic.
Adam Enright: Good Bitch Goes Down

Mr. New York 2015 Escort of the Year Contest
Gay country musician Steve Grand has earned a rapid following—even among twang-averse New Yorkers—thanks to his catchy tunes "All-American Boy" and "Stay." (His stint as an underwear model probably didn't hurt.) He previews songs from his debut album, All-American Boy, at this intimate Valentine's Day show.
