Del Fuegos

8 p.m. Thursday, March 1. Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

Del Fuegos
Wayne Veins

Cut from the same proto-punk cloth as Tom Petty and the Hearbreakers, the Del Fuegos had hooks, looks, tunes and 'tude: everything it should have taken to break into the '80s mainstream. Everything, that is, but business sense. The band notoriously sold out too soon (shilling in a Miller beer commercial), squabbled over songwriting and got sucked into studio-glossed R&B. Its best songs, "Don't Run Wild," "Hand in Hand" and "I Still Want You," are still among Dan Zanes' best tunes, and along with brother Warren, bassist Tom Lloyd and drummer Woody Giessmann (all original members), the reunited Del Fuegos should have the muscle to rescue them from the cut-out bin.

Why This Show Matters: A non-Disney-approved rock show from Dan Zanes is nearly as rare as a show by his first band, which hasn't toured in more than twenty years.
