Tonight in Music: The Queers, Passion Pit

Posted by Morgan Troper on Wed, Dec 1, 2010 at 12:42 PM

THE QUEERS, KEPI GHOULIE, THE RIPTIDES, THE BLOOD TYPES

(Dante's, 1 SW 3rd) My brief fling with the Queers came with Love Songs for the Retarded and sizzled out a few albums later with the less appealing Punk Rock Confidential. During the '90s Joe Queer was the regionally dispersed Joey Ramone disciple for the East Coast (Dr. Frank represented the West Coast, while the flyover states had Ben Weasel) and despite sporting the unconventional look of leather jacket and baseball cap, Queer played—and looked—the part, right down to the vocal snarl and Chuck Taylors on his feet. They said it best: Fuck the world, I'm hanging out with you tonight. EZRA ACE CARAEFF


PASSION PIT, MISTER HEAVENLY, WE BARBARIANS, PEPPER RABBIT

(Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside) If your passion for all things Passion Pit knows no bounds, you won't miss tonight's show with the New England synth-pop practitioners—but make sure you don't miss their after-hours DJ set across the river at Rotture! NED LANNAMANN


PASSION PIT DJ AFTERPARTY: PASSION PIT, RUDE DUDES

(Rotture, 315 SE 3rd) If your passion for all things Passion Pit knows no bounds, you won't miss tonight's show with the New England synth-pop practitioners—but make sure you don't miss their after-hours DJ set across the river at Rotture! NED LANNAMANN
