Editors Note: This event was originally scheduled for May 25, but we have moved it to June 8. On May 25, we will present an evening of music dedicated to bands from Manchester in solidarity with the city after this week’s tragedy.
For the last several years, an ’80s festival called Retro Futura has presented some of our favorite artists, including Howard Jones, The English Beat, Modern English, Men Without Hats, Katrina (of The Waves), Tom Bailey of the Thompson Twins, Midge Ure, and many others.
We’ll celebrate the ’80s festival circuit with these artists and others, alongside your requests, at the next edition of Careless Memories: A New Wave Party, this Thursday, May 25.
Watch the official music video for “Things Can Only Get Better” by Howard Jones on YouTube:
For more info on Retro Futura, read about its Baltimore edition on July 30. To dance the night away, visit Careless Memories on May 25.
Admission is free. RSVP on Facebook or simply meet us there!
