Echo & the Bunnymen

The ’80s will never die. . . . Well, maybe eventually, but not any time soon. If Duran Duran’s third-from-the-top spot on the mainstage at Coachella wasn’t enough evidence for you, here’s more: Echo & the Bunnymen are currently on a headlining, U.S. tour, bringing genuine retro flavor to the House of Blues just one night after the venue’s cover-band-filled House of ’80s Prom. Though it has been more than two decades since “Lips Like Sugar,” singer Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant continue to record new music, as recently as 2009’s The Fountain. Sure, the crowd will likely skew older, but there are probably at least a few younger folks who got into the band through perennial cult fave Donnie Darko’s heavy use of “The Killing Moon.”
