What do you do if your band hasn't had a hit in, say, two decades? And what happens if you're still hanging onto those glory days when Spandex was a good thing and Aqua Net was as much a necessity as food and water? You know-when new wave was still actually kind of new? Solution: You find other bands clinging desperately to that same memory, and you all go on tour together. Appropriately named Lost '80s Live, the show features Dramarama, A Flock of Seagulls (we know you're wondering, and sadly, yes, they've ditched the 'dos), Real Life, When In Rome and Gene Loves Jezebel. The night doesn't give you an excuse to break out the acid-washed jeans again-nothing ever will-but at least you can still relive your teen years through the music.
