Miami New Times recently ran a feature on the still-alive Holy Terrors, legends of the Miami rock scene. Click here to read that story, which in help sparked the band to get together another reunion show.
Rob Elba, William Trev, Dan Hosker, and Sam Fogarino form the classic Holy Terrors lineup that old people remember and younger people talk about when discussing the Nineties South Florida music scene. Later on, Fogarino made the time-honored trek so many talented Miami musicians make to NYC and joined a little band called Interpol. But as a Terror, he was the steady hand behind Elba's inventive (and sometimes obnoxious) vocalizations.
Now, during an interlude from his current duties, Fogarino is returning to Miami to play a set with the boys at a quaint sort-of English Pub in the heart of Little Haiti. Nostalgia aside, the Terrors are a legitimate musical force to be reckoned with and they do not disappoint during their occasional live shows.
The Holy Terrors play with Humbert and Tongues of the Heartworm. Saturday, January 10th. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Show (supposedly) starts at 9 p.m. Ages 18+ with ID, and cover, as usual at Churchill's, is a crap shoot (sorry). 305-757-1807; www.churchillspub.com.
