“She’s the one who would have taken me to my first all-ages show,” sings Juliana Hatfield in “My Sister” (1993). “It was the Violent Femmes and the Del Fuegos, before they had a record out, before they went gold.” That would have been about 30 years ago now; the Boston garage rockers led by brothers Dan and Warren Zanes started playing together in 1980, hit it beer-commercial big in 1984, and broke up in 1990. Last year the Del Fuegos got back together for the first time since the breakup, and their reunion tour stops at the Varsity Theater on February 28. Catch ‘em while you can.
