'80s Stars Book of Love Return to San Antonio with New Music


  • Courtesy
Best known for the track “Pretty Boys and Pretty Girls,” which was one of the first songs to address the AIDS epidemic of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Book of Love first gained exposure by opening for Depeche Mode in 1985 and 1986.

The synth-pop four-piece reunited for a one-off Houston show in April 2013, but announced the following June that they were working on new music. They’ve been touring ever since. The band hit SA for a performance at Maverick Music Festival last year, and is returning this Thursday.

$29.50, Thu Sept 20, 7:30pm, The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, tobincenter.org.
