Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, aka OMD, are one of the best modern English bands to emerge from the UK new wave scene, and I would go so far as to say one of the best bands ever anywhere period. OMD play at 9:30 Club on Tuesday, March 6, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC by joining us at Dodge City on Thursday, Jan. 11.
Inspired by Kraftwerk, Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, and company started making artful synthpop almost 40 years ago. Delightfully, OMD are back at it with The Punishment of Luxury, a great new album released by 100% Records subsidiary White Noise last fall.
To celebrate the upcoming show by OMD, Careless Memories: A New Wave Party, our new wave dance night, will be “Talking Loud and Clear.” We will play some OMD music along with other new wave artists at Dodge City (917 U St. NW, DC) on Thursday, Jan. 11. While you’re there, enter to win a pair of tickets to see OMD perform at 9:30 Club in our free raffle!
