Lucy's last show

"...until the next one, anyway"

The last time Lucy’s Fur Coat played at the Casbah, I left in an ambulance. At the time, band members were promising it would be their last-ever show, and an enthusiastic crowd was going to make sure they went out with a bang. But, rowdy fans + someone’s broken pint glass = trip to the ER.

Thankfully, I survived to see the band play another pair of shows…and, thankfully, so did guitarist Tony Sanfilippo, whose major heart attack in July nearly brought an end to more than just the group’s return to the stage after a nearly seven-year break.

Time may be catching up with him, as he sang in “Myself,” but in 2015 Charlie Ware is still possibly the best singer to ever front a San Diego band. A ball of ceaseless energy, Ware alternated between menacing and happy at the Casbah, at one point even giving Sanfilippo a kiss on the head, mid-solo. Tight in some spots and a little less so in others, the band’s return to the stage was every bit as chaotic and unpredictable as ever.

Ware announced that Lucy’s Fur Coat’s upcoming appearance at October’s 91X Homecoming show would be the band’s final show…prompting guitarist Mike Santos to add, “Until the next one, anyway.”
