Triple threat. Third time’s the charm. Rule of three. The Holy Trinity. Three-part harmony. 3-D.
Today is a presale for the touring ’80s festival known as the Retro Futura Tour, which stops at Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore on Sunday, July 30. DC folks may remember it as The Regeneration Tour, but it has been reshaped and rebranded since its visits to Wolf Trap a few years back!
Visit Live Nation and use the presale code MAGIC until 10pm today to get advance tickets to see the 2017 tour with Howard Jones, The English Beat, Modern English, Men Without Hats, Katrina (formerly of Katrina and the Waves), and Annabella Lwin (formerly of Bow Wow Wow, standing in for Paul Young on July 30). Tickets become available to the public on Friday.
Blake Miller of Moving Units brought his post-punk outfit Moving Units to DC9 on Wednesday to play the songs of Joy Division. And it was glorious.
Way back in 1980, when I was in a grade school, a classmate brought The Cure compilation album Boys Don’t Cry into our classroom.
Lol Tolhurst, founding member of The Cure, was chatting with Robert Smith in Hawaii in 2013 when he had an epiphany: He would write a book.

Los Angeles indie rock trio Potty Mouth are no strangers to DC. They most recently visited us in October to open for Chvrches at Echostage! Now they return for a headlining show at DC9 on Sunday, March 5.
