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 and flux capacitors 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 Pee-wee Herman with the aid of costume changes and Cyclops-shaming doses of eyeliner. With hits spanning from AC/DC to Wang Chung, The Molly Ringwalds’ live experience takes people back to a time when trucks were always available in monster size.
