The House of Blues in Anaheim is about to take a totally awesome trip back in time to become House of '80s, a music showcase celebrating one of the raddest decades in modern music. Legendary KROQ DJ Richard Blade has been a music fixture since he made his career in the '80s playing New Wave and rock hits, later hosting his own MTV-like video program for KTLA (most recently he hosts the '80s music show First Wave on Sirius Radio); tonight he will be spinning New Wave (Rock Lobster, anyone?) and '80s alternative rock hits, alongside '80s tribute bands Past Action Heroes, One Hot Mess, Neon Nation and The Reflexx.
