Psychedelic Furs revisit new wave classics tonight (9/28/11)

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 7:00 AM

Psychedelic Furs One of the more innovative hit-makers of the ’80s — ahh, that decade of happy greed — the Psych Furs, featuring the ever gruff-voiced front man Richard Butler, are touring and will spin a slew of their proto-punk, modern rock, new wave classics. The blokes are still relevant, showcased by some live videos of the recent tour, and Butler’s voice has, shall we say, become more recognizable. Formed in 1977 and disbanded in 1991, they created many classics, which when spun on vinyl today, don’t sound dated. The fabulous Tom Tom Club, Tina Weymouth and Chris Franz of Talking Heads, will open. $34.50-$49.50. Knight Theater.
