The Queers and Health tonight (June 23)

Posted By on Wed, Jun 23, 2010 at 10:16 AM

The Queers Legendary pop-punk progeny (make that "post-punk pop-punk progeny") The Queers never was the kind of band (nor had the kind of band name) to cash in on its well-known notoriety and influence. Lead Queer Joe King – the lone original member, although there have been dozens of sidemen throughout the years – still has what it takes to put fannies in the seats and then exhort those white-belted asses to get the fuck back up. His stock in trade? Tightly-wound sing-along songs with choruses a mile long, powered by more axe racket than Andre Agassi on a meth bender at Guitar Center. With Pen 15, Razorkat. $10-$14, The Milestone, (Timothy C. Davis)


Health The curiously named electro noise dance quartet from the City of Lights are hitting the ballrooms and gin joints in support of the new remix album Disco2. When they're on, the track "We Are Water" for one, the combo sounds like a jacked-up muscle car lost in a jumble of electronic noise and beats, bouncing all over the place, with experimental noise that's intriguing. When they're not on, they stroll off into noodly dance beats that go nowhere. Most of the time, though, the combo rocks, albeit with harsh electronica. Also on the bill: Indian Jewelry and Gold Panda. $11, Snug Harbor, (Samir Shukla)
