Fourteen-month-old Malcolm Long listens with fascination as Miss Marie Spinosa and other members of Professor Louie and the Crowmatix belt out a blues tune Thursday evening in the front dining room of 600 Downtown pizzeria. The restaurant donated 50 percent of the profits from its fourth anniversary event to the Holland Theatre, where the Grammy nominated Woodstock, N.Y., band was started by Aaron “Professor Louie” Hurwitz (on accordion) and performs a full set beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Holland. Tickets are available at the door for $12 or $17 per seat. “Professor Louie” worked nearly two decades with The Band and its individual members. (EXAMINER PHOTO | REUBEN MEES)
