Cablevision Systems Corp.'s retail division, The Wiz, and regional television
network MetroTV announced several efforts Tuesday designed to find and promote
new local rock bands in the New York area.
Rock musician Little Steven -- also known as Steven van Zandt to fans of Home
Box Office hit The Sopranos -- helped to announce the event at a
Manhattan branch of The Wiz.
Through the rest of the summer, the retailer will host a contest called the
'Cavestomp Garage Rock Band' search. Winning bands will be included in a
compilation CD sold at The Wiz, and they may appear on MetroTV's new music show,
