Longstanding punk rock bands The Queers and The Dwarves recently linked up for several North American tour dates. We had the pleasure of catching these seminal punk rockers as they ripped through Philly’s Barbary venue with local support by Bucket Flush and Atom Age.
Combining shock-rock lyrics with every niche and sub-niche of hardcore punk known to man since the early 80s, The Dwarves still put on a show that can bring the roof down. The band returned to form with their 8th studio album, 2011’s The Dwarves Are Born Again and have been ripping up venues around the globe ever since. The Queers too have maintained a prolific outpouring of material since their inception in 1981 and are currently supporting a brand new live album, Olé Maestro, and their latest full-length, Back To The Basement on longtime label Asian Man Records. There was no shortage of support from longtime Philly fans who packed the Barbary to standing room only as these mainstays plowed through a barrage of tracks that spanned a 30+ year history.
Without futher ado..
