Don’t Pity the Fool

April 1st may have passed and but there are always fools afoot. Here are some local music recommendations for those who want to get in April’s foolish spirit.

1. Mod Gun

Last year, Mod Gun released their album “Fools”. Gritty, unique punk rock with lyrics you actually want to listen to. This band has everything going for it. Download their releases from Bandcamp. While you’re there, check out their song Clover – perfect for your spring rock collection. Catch them live at O’Brien’s in Allston on April 17 or May 24th.

2. The Fools

THE favorite party band of the 80s! The band still holds up as a great time and a great listen. With hits like “Psycho Chicken,” “Life Sucks Then You Die,” “It’s a Night for Beautiful Girls,” and “She Makes Me Feel Big,” this band brought the fun and made you drink it. They toured, opening for bands like Van Halen, J. Geils Band and Rush. Mike Girard, lead singer, has written a book about their exploits: “Psycho Chicken & Other Foolish Tales”. The Fools are still playing out! Check out the band’s website to find out where you can check them out live and in person. Like they say, they’re the only band you’ll ever need. You’re never too old to rock and roll — remember that, kids.
