With a three-chord, Ramones style of pop punk, the Queers formed in 1982 and gained notoriety across their hometown in New Hampshire with their debut album, 1990’s “Grow Up.” But it wasn’t until the 1993 release of “Love Songs for the Retarded” that the band’s following grew substantially. The songs were goofy and full of topics that ranged from girls to drugs and alcohol to just having fun. The band originally broke up in late 1984, but reformed and went through various lineup changes with Joe King (aka Joe Queer) remaining the only constant for the next few decades. A string of releases followed in the early 2000s, and the latest albums released by the Queers include the 2010 album “Back to the Basement” and a split 7-inch with Killtime in 2011. The Queers perform with Teenage Bottlerocket and Masked Intruder at the Camel on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m. $12. thequeersrva.eventbrite.com.
