    A friend and I checked out Margaret Explosion at Starry Nites Cafe on University Ave.
    The cafe is a nice cozy spot with a tasty lite menu, including a nice wine list. Service was great. Margaret Explosion served up dreamy music, though after a while it began to sound the same. But that wouldn't stop me from going to hear them again.
