The weather was warm. I wore jeans.

The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

No energy, tired performance. Every song sounded the same. I just saw The Pretenders at the same venue and they rocked. Embarrassing! They even butchered a Rolling Stones number, which is hard to do. During the encore.........what a disaster. And...continued

Excellent time once the Go-Go's started playing. I can't say much for the opening act except how AWFUL it was. It was so bad that I can't remember their name. The guy wasn't even singing, he was just yelling his songs.

Another disappointment...continued

Description

From their halcyon days as America’s Sweethearts to their current status as iconic superstars, The Go-Go’s continue to preside over an amazing three-decade reign as high pop priestesses. The internationally-loved pop hitmakers created a canon of work that defined the free-spirited ’80s sound without session players, co-writers or, most importantly, creative compromise. 

The Go-Go’s sang and played their own songs, offering five feisty role models for a generation of ready-to-rock girls and good, hooky fun for pop-loving guys. And now, as they celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album Beauty And The Beat, the band continues to be as vital as ever. Their enduring hits — including “Vacation,” “Head Over Heels,” “We’ve Got The Beat,” and “Turn To You” — live on in countless compilations, movie soundtracks, remakes and, a string of very successful television commercials. 

Today, with the same line-up intact (Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock and Kathy Valentine), The Go-Go’s live show continues to deliver every bit of the raw energy of their now-legendary punk beginnings, tempered with the wisdom of three decades of pop perfection. They have no need to change their sound to be “modern” or “current” or to wander off on some trendy tangent.
