You can take the boy out of Miami, but you can't take the Miami out of the Boy. Hometown punk rock hero Raf Classic is back in town for the triumphant return of his 16-years and running outfit, The Crumbs. Sure, Classic may have left town in the dark of night 18 months ago ala the Baltimore Colts. But it's hard to begrudge him a little space. After all, the man has a way of catching up to you when you've lived on a combination of wits and schlitz for two decades.
Thankfully, the smoke has cleared: allowing Classic to visit Miami long enough for The Crumbs to play "April Pool's Day" at Churchill's this Friday night. Songs about alien girl love, homeless bards, and what it's like to be truly "Down at Churchill's" will be performed. Classic will lay down bar chatter like Cheech Marin on a bender. He will embrace "Dade County Trash" and wonder aloud why his bassist's moustache hasn't flown south for the winter. A Crumbs show at Churchill's is a uniquely Miami experience. Attending one is not unlike going to Cafe Versailles at 3 AM, minus the heartburn.
Go and see why Classic has managed to convince five different record labels to underwrite recording sessions in vacation destination conducive to drinking. You won't be disappointed. Unless of course, you wind up with Classic's bar tab.
