Due to incorrect information provided, the opening night and regular run for the Pink Cadillac Club at Annie's of Georgetown was listed incorrectly in yesterday's Style section. The club will open on Monday and operate every Monday thereafter.
Local "tramps" will have a place to dance in the dark when Washington's first all-Bruce Springsteen nightclub opens tomorrow night at Annie's in Georgetown. The Pink Cadillac Club will rev up every Thursday with records, tapes and videos, including some rare items not available commercially. This may be a new trend: In Los Angeles, the Boss Club has been operating for a year, and there are clubs set for Detroit and New York (the latter will operate seven nights a week).
The Boss, incidentally, has nothing to do with these clubs, which are all fan-oriented and fan-generated: Washington's club was started by Bob Zimmerman, a contributing editor and photographer for Backstreets, the main Springsteen fanzine.
"This isn't just geared towards the 'Born in the U.S.A.' crowd," Zimmerman says, referring to those arrivistes who have discovered Springsteen only in the last 12 months. "We want to be a little more historical, more vintage in our selection of music. We don't want to be just a bunch of Bruce boors."
Springsteen's new single, the seventh from "Born in the U.S.A.," has as its B side "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," recorded in 1975 and previously available only on the "In Harmony 2" collection of children's songs. Completists had been hoping the Boss would release his version of Edwin Starr's "War," which he had been using in concert.
And finally, the Boss, a Springsteen tribute band, plays at the Roxy on Dec. 11. Ewing Crooning
"Miami Vice" is music television, but "Dallas"? Well, Warner Bros. is hoping there's a connection. It has just released "Dallas -- The Music Story," with 10 "episodes" based on and inspired by the characters, relationships and events on the show ("The Loneliness in Lucy's Eyes," "J.R., Who Do You Think You Are?," "Who Killed Jock Ewing"). Performances are mostly by country stars like Crystal Gayle, Gary Morris and Johnny Lee, but include some by the show's Steve Kanaly, Howard Keel and Jenilee Harrison.
One of the retail surprises of the year has been a two-record, 65-track collection called "Television's Greatest Hits," on the TeeVee Toons label. Half the tracks are originals, the rest skillful re-creations. The set, running the gamut from "Magilla Gorilla" and "Branded" to such classics as "Dragnet," "Gilligan's Island" and "The Patty Duke Show," is instant nostalgia, and the biggest surprise may be how many of the lyrics come flashing back with just a hint of a familiar melody. And with 400 radio stations playing one or more cuts, Volume 2 is on the way. Counterfeit Cassettes
Live Aid's decision not to produce any follow-up records or videos has proved to be a boon for pirates, according to the International Federation of Phonogram and Video Producers, who estimate that more than 1 million illicit Live Aid cassettes have been sold since July.
The tapes are on sale throughout the Middle East and parts of Asia, federation investigators said. In Saudi Arabia, they are best sellers on at least six separate labels. Some versions include most of the musicians and groups that took part in the Live Aid concerts in London and Philadelphia; there's also an eight-cassette set.
Meanwhile, Bob Geldof, the man who thought of Live Aid, just saw his group, the Boomtown Rats, dropped by CBS records. Geldof may have had a heart of gold, but the bottom line still seems to be platinum. 'Broadway' Barbra
Barbra Streisand's return to roots with "The Broadway Album" has proved to be an astute commercial move: It debuted in Billboard at No. 59 and jumped in three weeks to No. 13 (her last pop album, "Emotion," peaked at No. 19). For her new single and video, "Somewhere," though, Streisand went a little uptown, to Harlem's fabled Apollo Theatre, where she took direction from William Friedkin ("The Exorcist," "French Connection," "To Live and Die in L.A."). Andrzej Bartowiak ("Terms of Endearment," "Prizzi's Honor") did the cinematography. Proceeds from the single's sales will go to AMFAR (Americans for AIDS Research) and Pro-Peace, the global nuclear disarmament organization sponsoring the massive "Peace" march on Washington next year. Bits and Pieces
Alex Cox, whose feature debut, "Repo Man," captured some of the spirit of Los Angeles' punk milieu, is now filming "Love Kills," the story of the late Sex Pistol Sid Vicious and the girl he loved and killed, Nancy Spungen. The film should be ready for the 10th anniversary of punk's arrival in London. Ironically, the music is being handled by Glen Matlock, who was fired from the Pistols to make way for Vicious. Will the theme be Vicious' odd handling of "My Way?" . . .
Local musicians looking for exposure in Montgomery County can talk to the producers at "Takoma Tempo," a weekly show on Takoma Park Television (cable, Channel 24). The half-hour show, hosted by WHFS jock Adele Bunoski and featuring performances and interviews, runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. This week's program focuses on guitarist Dan Hovey. Also in December: the Rhythm Masters (10, 12), Teresa Gunn Group (17, 19), Goin' Goin' Gone (24, 26) and Pete Kennedy (30, Jan. 2) . . .
When Tony Bennett plays the George Mason University Patriot Center tomorrow night, Washington's newest concert venue will have its capacity shrunk from 10,000 to 4,000, thanks to a large curtain specially hung to make the hall more intimate. This will give the Fairfax facility strong options in its booking policies and provide stiff competition for the similar-sized Constitution Hall.
