Awesome 80’s Tour

- Bow Wow Wow was created by the late punk Svengali Malcolm McLaren
- 13: the age of lead singer Annabelle Lwin when she joined the band
- New lead singer Chloe Demeteria nails Lwin’s squeal and tribal caterwaul, even while legally driving

Bergen Performing Arts Center
In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
