Marriage(?), Drugs, and Rock ´n’ Roll

When guys fantasize about becoming rock stars, they picture more then just playing music to millions of adoring fans and making tons of cash. They also think of the “other” benefit: Lots and lots of promiscuous sex. It’s one of the many reasons rock marriages don’t last. Fighting the constant temptation of wanton groupies proves way too difficult for the average musician.

The Handsome Furs might have come up with a solution to this little problem. Dan Boeckner (of Wolf Parade) and Alexei Perry are not only band mates, but also bedmates. This recently married duo has been touring in support of their highly acclaimed, electro-indie debut, Plague Park. You can congratulate them personally when they play at 8 p.m. at Respectable Street (518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach) with special guests The Violens. Just don’t get any ideas – remember, they’re both taken. (Unless, of course, they’re into the group thing.) Tickets cost $10. Visit
