Rock fans don't always like to be tricked. With a gig billed as "Dante's Camaro is Dead" at the Tin Roof last August, local bar-rock band Dante's Camaro faked their break-up with a well-hyped farewell. "Four years is a long fucking time to be putting up with all you panty waists," stated Ben Dante in a press release. "We're fucking through. This is our final show. The Tin Roof had better be fucking glad we chose them for this event." The place was packed. A month later, they re-emerged, Kiss-style, with a comeback gig at the same venue. The place was half-empty.
