Legendary songwriters Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford form the backbone of Squeeze, and the gents are bringing the latest incarnation of their new wave band to 9:30 Club on Tuesday, Nov. 28. You can win tickets to see them with Parklife DC by joining a free raffle at Dodge City on Thursday, Oct. 19.
Last Friday, Squeeze released The Knowledge, the band’s 14th studio album of original material, via their own Love Records. Starting next month, Squeeze will squeeze in a US leg of their Join the Dots Tour to introduce Americans to some of their new songs in places like 9:30 Club.
But of course, we recall well the Squeeze classics, which include such clever and memorable songs as “Take Me, I’m Yours,” “Goodbye Girl,” “Cool for Cats,” “Pulling Mussels (from the Shell),” “Tempted,” and “Black Coffee in Bed,” among others.
Watch the official music video for “Black Coffee in Bed” by Squeeze on YouTube:
To celebrate the arrival of Squeeze, Careless Memories: A New Wave Party, our new wave dance night, is “cool for cats!” We will play some Squeeze songs at Dodge City (917 U St. NW, DC) on Thursday, Oct. 19.
