Why We Love (the Band) Boogers

Cleveland-based EMT Joe Hongosh, who runs the Facebook Group CPR Kids (Cleveland Punk Rock Kids), hosts local events geared toward tweens and teens. Last year, when Halloween was essentially rained out, he threw a big Halloween party at a VFW hall so that kids could still celebrate the holiday. This spring, he’s helping to bring the Boogers, a Chicago-based family friendly punk act, to the Agora for a matinee show on April 13.

Billing themselves as “the Anti-Barney” and “the Wiggles’ Worst Nightmare,” the guys write songs about pancakes and pandas. In one tune, singer Paul Crowe, who goes by the moniker Crusty Booger, extols the virtues of eating vegetables. Nice! A veteran punk rocker who holds a Ph.D. in developmental psychology, Crowe can really connect with the kids. The band’s official bio includes a quote from Ramones tour manager Monte Melnick. He says, “If the Ramones had ever decided to make a children’s album, this is what it would have sounded like.” You couldn't ask for a finer endorsement. Tickets for the show are on sale now at Ticketweb. They cost $10.
