Sat 4/1
The Psychedelic Furs


Were you a high schooler in the ‘80s with rich parents and a social life full of hella dramatic mischief that would always resolve itself in a clean 96 minutes? Probably not — but whatever scenario the characters in all those John Hughes movies found themselves in, the soundtrack that scored said drama was usually pretty amazing. So go figure Hughes would name one of his signature films, Pretty In Pink, after one of the main shapers of that definitive ‘80s post-punk sound: The Psychedelic Furs. While they formed alongside new-wave counterparts like Echo and The Bunnymen and Modern English, the Furs still carved out their a distinct sound, incorporating hints of moody Cure- and Smiths-like indie pop and rock. Today, they remain a stellar example of that special, eclectic fusion embodied in so much of the ‘80s aesthetic. Also on the bill: Robyn Hitchcock. $27, doors at 7pm Sat, Paper Tiger, 2410 N.
