The Details: I’ve said this before and I will say it again because the 80’s were a magical, mystifying and somewhat maddening musical time for anyone who was lucky enough to be old enough to experience and enjoy it as a fan. Now I have admitted also that while being a tried and true “Metal head” for the majority of my life, I really enjoyed a LOT of what the decade delivered to us all. I was no stranger to heading out into the Big Country with The Cars or showing how much I loved Rock and Roll with some Blackheart friends while Berlin proved that there were often “No More Words that could be said for the “Mental Hopscotch” that we were all playing. Now many of these groups are the stuff of music history but thanks to the Technicolor freakies of Rubix Kube fans can relive this fantastic music night after night thanks to their energetic show. It’s a great time for sure and the past shows have featured special guests like Dee Snider so who knows what surprises await you audience members. Thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal is going to put some fans into this sure to be rocking show so get your wildest clothes ready to go and read on for more details.
When and Where: Friday, May 17th, 9:30pm @ Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd St. NYC)
To Participate: Okay, so far I have had the readers tell me what their favorite eighties tunes and videos were so now let’s simply inquire as to what your very favorite top three eighties are and what makes them so special to you. I will be picking a few winners from the responders and commenting directly below their entry so do your best to sell me on your choices. Be sure to put your full real name and an email in the comment form so we can reach you, and it never hurts to subscribe to the comments so you know when or if you win. Please DON’T put this information in the comment itself, as that messes with the privacy concerns. By the way, those anonymous and guest submissions while approved will not be considered for the contest. Sorry, we need to know your name to pick you.
Restrictions: While we are generally looking for new winners first that does not preclude past winners from chiming in as the last show was over a month ago. Who knows, you might just luck out one more time. Remember these are single tickets and there are NO plus ones being offered.

The last couple of times I’ve embedded some codes for great 80’s music compilations, but this time around I am dropping hints on some of the bands that made the eighties great by leaving you links to their hits compilation releases. I personally have a number of these albums in my own collection.
