Missing Persons' hit list will give you instant '80s flashbacks. Bouncy New Wave pop tracks like "Walking in L.A.," "Words" and "Destination Unknown" became quintessential Reagan Era earworms. And their bright, over-the-top looks helped keep their music videos on constant rotation during the early days of MTV. The Los Angeles-based group has had a bit of a revolving door line-up since their heyday, but front-woman Dale Bozzio and her helium-spiked vocals are on duty tonight to anchor the band. Bow Wow Wow's smash track "I Want Candy" defined the early '80s, and the group appealed to both pop and New Wave fans alike. This packed show at Santa Ana's Yost Theater also features Mr. Mirainga, Big Hippie Party and Space Rocket.
This is an all-ages show. A full cash bar is available for those with proper ID.
