And if you want to see what they’re up to these days, well, just head over to Club Helsinki in Hudson on Friday night (May 20) and catch the Figgs on a fab co-headlining bill with the bewigged Boston bad boys the Upper Crust.

Showtime is 9pm, and tickets are $18 in advance; $22 at the door. Rock on!
