Ordinary Boys
Live shows at Independent Bar are rare enough that any one is noteworthy, but this week’s booking of South Florida’s premier Smiths and Morrissey tribute act, Ordinary Boys, is worth a special mention. With Morrissey himself seemingly hell-bent on undoing all the goodwill he’s earned over the years with a sorrowfully predictable descent into right-wing xenophobia and racism in recent years, seeing a cover band – especially one as tightly honed as this one – might be the best option for fans of his music who are disgusted with his politics. Sorry, Mozza, but your joke isn’t funny anymore.
