I grabbed 5Head bassist, Steve Pizutto by the collar. I got in his face. "I'm tired of the lies, man," I snarled. "Admit it. The band is getting back together." Pizutto relented. He saw the murder in my eyes. "OK, OK," he said. "5HEAD is back." Last year, this legendary Rochester ska band got together for a reunion show. During an interview leading up to it they tried to give me the old "just for one show" song and dance. I wasn't buying it. This band was too much fun to ever go away in the first place. And now it's back. For good. Sorry about the collar, Steve. I've only caught new rock-and-soul sensations the Fox Sisters once and already love them. Ex-Thundergods! Ex-Quitters! Horns! Yes!
5Head plays with The Fox Sisters Friday, March 15, 9:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $8-$12. abilenebarandlounge.com.
