The Queers

Veteran Boston-area punk rockers the Queers aren't just another melodic, Ramones-like speed-punk band looking to scrape up a few new fans; they've been a punk institution since the early Eighties. Frontman Joe King has been the sole constant of the group since its inception, and, moshers, beware: He's never been a big fan of the violence during his shows. "With all this stupid Irish, Dropkick Murphys BS these days, the whole punk scene — what's left of it — is full of a-holes that just wanna fight."

The Heart Attacks face no such turmoil within their chosen genre, old-school hard rock that brings to mind bands like Hanoi Rocks and early Def Leppard. They're signed to Hellcat Records, an Epitaph-related imprint run by Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong. That relationship has put the band into perpetual touring mode. "We sort of snuck ourselves onto the bill at a festival," singer Chase Noles relates. "Tim saw us, dragged us into his tent, and signed us on the spot." Eric W. Saeger


The Queers perform with the Heart Attacks, the Riptides, Stay Hitt, and DJ Filip Eee Nooo at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, January 27, at Churchill's, 5501 NE 2nd Ave, Miami. Those eighteen and older are welcome with ID. Admission is $10. Call 305-757-1807 for more information.
