The Queers Are Here


It’s hard to believe it’s been 21 years since Joe Queer, B-Face and Hugh O’Neill put out the classic Love Songs for the Retarded on Lookout! Records. If you don’t know who they are, then listen up during the first song on the record, You’re Tripping, as they sing, “Bring on the beers ’cause we are The Queers.” This Wednesday at Grand Victory, The Queers bring their ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, Ramones-style of punk rock to Brooklyn to drink all the beer and rock your face off. Get ready to dance to classics like Fuck This World (co-written by Screeching Weasel’s Ben Weasel) and Ursula Finally Has Tits, which makes me feel 13 all over again (well, I was 13 in 1993). Tickets are only $15 and totally worth it.–JH
