The Queers 

Monday, September 6, at El Torreon.

These New Hampshire losers have been pop-punking it for more than two decades, through more lineup changes and Ramones grave robbery than is strictly healthy. Graying singer-guitarist Joe Queer (Joe King) -- a fortysomething acting like a teenager addicted to girls, beer, rough vocals, icky metaphors and acting the fool -- is the driving force behind the Queers. His three-chord, Bubble-Yum status quo hasn't changed much since the early '90s, but the band refuses to break up. Instead, the group constantly feeds that spazoid teen in a leather jacket covered in buttons they imagine resides inside each and every one of us. And who knows? They could be right.
