Music: New Haven rock legends The Furors return Thurs., Nov. 8

Comprised of guitarist Derek Holcomb and drummer Tom Dans—Holcomb sings lead and Dans harmonizes—The Furors have been playing together for over three decades. They have self-released numerous vinyl 45s, a vinyl LP and several compact discs. Their catalog is so beloved among local musicians that a tribute album, “Let’s Get Furious,” was released in 2003 featuring 38 Furors songs covered by 38 local musicians and groups.

The Furors’ music is joyful, quirky three-minute pop, like a cross between They Might Be Giants and early British Invasion rock ‘n’ roll. For their Nov. 8 set they will be playing an electric set. The music will start promptly at 8 PM.

Here are The Furors playing their classic 45 cut “A Thing for Blondes” at Huntington Street Cafe in Shelton January of last year (courtesy of Dave Kelsey of Golden Microphone Productions):

The Best Video Coffee & Wine Bar will be open, serving great coffee drinks, wine, beer and snacks. The cover charge for this show is $5.
