Super TroopersBig Apple troubadours roll their boogie-mobile into town to break your heart and put it back together again. 

If you take up go-karting, make sure you hit the gym beforehand. Take it from the dudes in the Eastlake Grand Prix.

With country-rockin' singer-guitarist Kara Suzanne at the wheel, the Kings County Caravan leaves its New York home base behind for an "Americana grab bag of country, boogie-woogie, soul, and blues" tunes in Cleveland. Along for the ride are fellow pickers Kenny Cambre, Steve Lewis, and the Reverend John DeLore. And their hour-long set ranges from Suzanne's bouncy "Old Mr. Flynn" and Cambre's twangy "Sparked a Memory" to Lewis' rambling "Same Water" and DeLore's woesome "Jerusalem." For a foursome who call the Brooklyn streets their home, their music is as close to the Grand Ol' Opry as you can get. Showtime is at 6:30 tonight at the Barking Spider, 11310 Juniper Road. Admission is free. Call 216-421-2863 or visit
