Pull out those skinny ties and baggy pants for this celebration of all things '80s. The totally tubular cover band 80-Do unleashes lead singer Kandi on great songs like "Love Shack," "99 Red Balloons" and "Hit Me With Your Best Shot." But hair metal and New Wave is also well-represented with guitar-driven hits from Journey, Billy Idol, Bon Jovi and beyond, as well as The Cure, Depeche Mode and Oingo Boingo. And no '80s band worth its Ray-Bans would leave out the pop highlights of Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“(Robyn is) a shiny mainstream pop record with enough wit and weirdness to impress even jaded bloggers.” —Rolling Stone_ _
“The most inventive pop album you’ll hear all year.” —NME
Fresh off her hailed SXSW performance last month, Swedish dynamo Robyn will be embarking on an U.S. tour.
Robyn first hit the states with her 1997 debut Robyn Is Here. The album produced such hits as “Show Me Love” and “Do You Know (What It Takes)” and went on to sell over 900,000 copies. More than a decade later, she returns to the American music scene with her self-titled debut album scheduled to be released on April 29.
The new set finds Robyn collaborating with members of fellow Swede acts The Knife and Teddybears, among others. After shopping the self-titled disc to U.K. labels and then being rejected, Robyn decided to release the album through her own Konichiwa Records. She founded the label in 2004. The album has already been released abroad and the love-addled single “With Every Heartbeat” went to # 1 on the official U.K. Singles chart.
Robyn recently contributed vocals to a track by rapper Snoop Dogg, singing the chorus on the remix of his single "Sexual Eruption.”
