Stuart Goddard, who is responsible for 22 hit singles as Adam Ant, mugged, danced, and chatted his way through a lengthy show with an adoring audience at the Lincoln Theatre recently.
During the show, Adam Ant performed Friend or Foe, his debut solo album (but his fourth studio record overall), live in its entirety for the first time in DC, giving an earnest glam treatment to long-time favorites like “Goody Two Shoes,” “Desperate But Not Serious,” and “Friend or Foe.”
Parklife DC is giving away a pair of tickets to see Adam Ant at the Lincoln Theatre on Monday, Sept. 23! To enter our free drawing for Adam Ant tickets, visit us at Dodge City on Thursday, April 11, for Careless Memories: A New Wave Party.

The year 2017 was a good year for revisiting old friends as they returned to remind us that they truly still “got it.” In the past year, Parklife DC reviewed a great deal of musicians and bands, and the performances that really distinguished themselves often came as something of a pleasant surprise.

Adam Ant was on fire!
Ali Cat of Glam Skanks lovingly tells a former crush what to do with himself at Baltimore Soundstage on Sept. 19, 2017.
My favorite song by Glam Skanks is one that frontwoman Ali Cat lovingly introduces as a love song. And it certainly starts out as a traditional love song with its throwback ’50s rock ‘n roll vibe and initial cooing.
But before Ali even begins to strut across the stage, the song takes a whimsical turn for the better as she rains scorn down upon her former objet d’affection, proudly proclaiming the title “Fuck Off!” with a storm of hand gestures to emphasize the same.

Adam Ant invaded DC in January in a sold-out show, and now he’s returning to storm the stage in nearby Baltimore on Sept. 19 for a show dedicated to his singles catalog. (Read our Parklife DC review of his DC show in January.)

What do you get when you combine Wonder Woman with a motorcycle daredevil and give her the voice of Suzi Quatro?
You get Ali Cat, lead singer of Glam Skanks, a rock-n-roll girl band from Los Angeles. And when you put Ali with her bandmates, you get a ton of musical hijinks and a stageful of fun.
Adam Ant takes no prisoners in a great sold-out show at the Lincoln Theatre on Jan. 23, 2017.
With a gleam in his eye and fire in his belly, the iconic Adam Ant bounded onto the stage at the Lincoln Theatre on Monday night to shanghai us back to 1981.
