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.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred
Quotes & Highlights
Listen to song samples from Human League.
The Human League formed in 1977 and brilliantly pioneered the 1980s synth-pop sound. The band’s breakthrough album, 1981’s Dare, set the stage for the band’s rise to fame. The album generated four top-10 singles, the most famous of which is “Don’t You Want Me.” Human League is still going strong today, and this is your chance to catch them on their U.S. tour, playing their still-popular music.
Although it started as an offshoot of the ‘80s band English Beat, General Public enjoyed several substantial hits of their own during their career. Immediately after the split of the ska-pop outfit the English Beat in 1983, former members Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger formed General Public, which turned out to be more pop-based than its predecessor, with elements of classic Motown soul thrown in for good measure. Once former Dexy’s Midnight Runners keyboardist Mickey Billingham, former Specials bassist Horace Panter, and a drummer known simply as Stoker were added to the line-up, the band produced hits like “General Public,” “Tenderness,” “Come Again” and “Too Much or Nothing.”
