For Fear of Roses Reunion Tonight

Posted By on Thu, Dec 27, 2007 at 1:25 PM

Akron's For Fear of Roses will play a reunion set Thursday, December 27 at Annabell's (784 W. Market St., Akron. The alt-rock band played its first show at the bar in 1985, became pawns in a major-label bidding war, remained unsigned, opened for bands from 10,000 Maniacs to the Soup Dragons, and broke up in 1992. "We initially planned on a three-set, full-costume and outfit-change spectacular," says bassist Gerard Dominick, who has gone on to play with nearly every band in Ohio, including the Colin John Band. "But after one dress rehearsal, and the fact that we could not find a shoehorn large enough to get me into my vintage '80s garb, we will perform one set of music instead." The Brian Lisik Band will open. The 21+ show kicks off at 8 p.m.; admission is free. -- D.X. Ferris
