Cover bands look and sound just like the real thing, unlike cover audiences, who are just used mannequins holding up lighters. See the real almost-real thing with this GrouponLive deal to see The Molly Ringwalds at House of Blues Dallas. For $10, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Thursday, February 28, at 8:30 p.m. (up to a $19.33 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
As human shrines to the 1980s, the members of tribute act The Molly Ringwalds indulge audiences with a glamorous livewire performance that encapsulates the fashion, sound, and shameless spectacle of the seminal decade. With their stalwart devotion to the ‘80s spirit and refusal to cut back on the hair spray, the colorful quintet of English exports sets hearts aflutter with a songbook spanning New Wave numbers and glam-rock anthems. The spirit of the day-glo decade pulses like a football coach’s forehead vein as the band mimics iconic figureheads such as Devo and Freddie Mercury with the aid of costume changes and eyeliner. With hits spanning from AC/DC to Wang Chung to The Cure, The Molly Ringwalds live experience takes people back to a time when trucks were always available in monster size.<p>

House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
