Known by millennials as the band that plays “that one song that goes ‘anything, anything,’” the New Jersey-spawned '80s alt-rockers who topped the charts with that hooky earworm reunited in 2003 and have been touring ever since. Their catalog includes many other notable tunes, of course, such as “Last Cigarette” and “Haven’t Got a Clue,” and credits in several cult films, including Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master—by all accounts, the best Krueger since the original. Opening up for John Easdale and crew are Smiling Face Down and experimental rockers, the Ferns, so get there early and prepare to be rock-pop walloped.
