The Details: The 80’s were a magical, mystifying and somewhat maddening musical time and while I was forged in the fires of Metal for most of my life, I have a super appreciation for so many songs from this amazing era. I’m not embarrassed to admit that I loved speeding on “The Metro” with Berlin, and playing “Mental Hopscotch” with Missing Persons, Billy Idol, The Fixx, The Vapors and many more. Great stuff. Now one of the best bands that are bringing these sounds into the now are the guys and gals of Rubix Kube who will be performing for the very first time at the Gramercy Theatre and this is sure to be a blast. Thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal is going to put some fans into this sure to be rocking show so get your wild colors on and don’t forget to wear your sunglasses at night as this show brings all these great classics to life once more.
When and Where: Friday, February 1st, 10:30pm @ Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd St. NYC)

Don’t put this in the comment itself, as that
Restrictions: None this time around, how awesome is that.
Maybe the amazing Eighties eluded you based on other musical influences or maybe you were just too young to be able to appreciate it all, and with either of these options being the case I am embedding some must have audio collections that feature the cream of the crop from this awesome era. I own most of these myself in the music library and am spinning the first one as I code this post for you. How is that for a testimonial.
