Mickey Krivosh sifts through a lot of demo tapes to fill the bill every week at Songwriters Unplugged
. If a band sounds decent in a recording studio, the Around the Corner owner invites them to his bar to play live. "If they do well, we invite them back and pay them some money," he says. "And if they're real good
, we find a time for them to play here regularly, either during the week or on the weekends." That's why Krivosh is giving rockers Joe & Jay stage time tonight. "In this industry, there are a thousand bands out there," says Krivosh. "What you need to do is find these young people that are excited about playing out and making music."
