This could be THE best '80s concert of 2012



gogos2.jpegThe Go-Go's. Psychedelic Furs. The Motels. Bow Wow Wow. All together. One night. The legendary Hollywood Bowl. Saturday, Sept. 29. Sorry, but I'm hyperventilating and can only write short sentences.

Stuck in the '80s has been looking for the perfect concert roadtrip for 2012, and this. could. be. it.

Except, of course, we were JUST in Los Angeles last September. Not that L.A. isn't a lovely town, but last time we looked at the map, it's on the opposite coast from us and we promised to look for an East Coast trip this year.

Still. Wow. What a lineup. The Go-Go's are on top of their game these days, touring around regularly and staying tight. The Furs -- wow, I can only assure you that I've seen them recently and was A-mazed. (Listen to our podcast interview with Tim Butler for more inspiration.) I've never seen The Motels, so that'd be fun. And Bow Wow Wow just announced plans to reunite for a UK tour. So it just feels right.

Tickets go on sale May 5, so we'll make a decision before then. At the very least, maybe we'll find a way to sneak out there for an casual get-together and maybe find something else closer to home for the rest of our friends. New Orleans maybe? Chicago? Atlanta? Washington DC? Help us find a worthy concert weekend, Stuck in the '80s Nation!
