Danceability has always been a crucial part of pop music throughout the ages, but which decade -- the '80s or the '90s -- had the songs that can still make modern feet move? That very question will be answered in one night at The Fillmore as Biz Markie and several top cover bands curate a stream of hits from both the '80s and '90s. Markie, a beatboxer and rapper known for his 1989 Top 10 song "Just A Friend," plays host and DJ while '80s cover band The New Romance and '90s cover band Here's To The Night open and close the lineup with expert renditions of your favorite dance-worthy songs from their respective eras.
