Day #219: Howard Jones – “Things Can Only Get Better”
Well, I found an 80’s Dance Party I like! The Black Cat’s Eighties Mayhem does it up. Being out there Saturday night with Kim and Nicole, it felt a lot like being in that club from Pretty in Pink. It’s a sort of dive-y club where the freaks go. And, it wasn’t even the usual hipster contingent that otherwise out there for shows. Naturally, it takes a person willing to unselfconsciously act a fool to enjoy an 80s Dance Party. A few DJs played a pretty good array of stuff nonstop. Everything from Michael Jackson to the Jesus and Mary Chain, although no one was really sure what to do when they played the latter. And, with the exception of a bride-to-be annoyingly blowing her party favor whistle all night (no, that’s not a euphemism), no one got piss drunk and made a complete ass of themselves. Legwarmers fans could learn a few things from this crowd.
