80sband

No, it's Rubix Cubed, a popular 80s cover band here in Tampa Bay. (Though I'm pretty sure I hit on the Madonna-lookalike at my reunion a couple years ago -- please don't tell the Don Johnson guy) They're popping up and playing gigs all around our area, including outside the St. Pete Times Forum a couple nights ago before The Cure concert.

But the big news is this: Rubix Cubed is playing Tropicana Field on Saturday, June 21, for the Tampa Bay Rays' "80s Night." Click here to listen to some of their music from their official website. (Oh yeah, and Kool & The Gang will play too after the game between the Rays and Astros.)

But if you want to hang with the hardcore 80s fans, you'll have to go to the TBT Lounge above left field. There you'll find Rubix Cubed as well as your buddies Sean Daly and myself. We'll be serving as hosts up there, holding a couple trivia contests, maybe judging a dance competition or two. (I've also entered Sean in a Pudding Pop eating contest.)

Here's the REALLY good news: We have a handful of game tickets to give away free to our local Stuck in the 80s fans. That's right, you can come party with Sean and I (and find how he's really the ladies' man and I'm doomed to spend my life as his wingman.) Just e-mail me at stuckinthe80s@tampabay.com for the tickets. Please, only e-mail if you're really able to use them ... and if you're not ashamed to hang out with me and Sean.
