What to Do Tonight: The Business

Posted By on Mon, Apr 26, 2010 at 8:30 AM

Meet the Business
  • Meet the Business

Most guys who do the same thing for 31 years eventually get a gold watch and settle in for some TV and maybe a little leisurely metal detecting at the park. Micky Fitz is having none of that. He co-founded the British punk band the Business in 1979, and there’s a good chance he’ll be singing oi! anthems like “England 5-Germany 1” and “Anywhere but Here” until he’s swinging his second hip and going on about on his third set of knees. Through a veritable crapstorm of band drama, media controversy, label shenanigans, breakups and reformations, Fitz and his rotating cast of punks have been throwing down for more than three decades, and the Business show no signs of stopping. After all, it took them 15 years to play the U.S. and another two to record their eighth album, The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth, with Rancid’s Lars Fredericksen in the production chair. Fitz and the Business are just getting warmed up. They play Now That’s Class, with the Hollowpoints opening at 9 p.m. Tickets: $5. —Brian Baker
