80s Concerts in Philadelphia 2011

Holy crap! It’s a New Wave Diva blog post! I haven’t touched this blog in ages. I decided to “revive” it today to post about all the awesome concerts coming up over the next few months. 2011 has been and continues to be an incredible year for live shows by some of my favorite 80s bands. I’ve already seen Gang of Four and Echo & The Bunnymen this year. Coming soon is…

Sunday, August 7th – Berlin with Terri Nunn at World Cafe Live.
Thursday, September 8th – Erasure at the TLA
Wednesday, September 21st – The Human League w/ Men Without Hats at The Keswick Theatre
Thursday, September 22nd – OMD at the TLA
Thursday, October 20th – Howard Jones at The Keswick Theatre

I hate to say it, but I *might* have to miss The Human League/Men Without Hats show. It’s on a work night in the ‘burbs and the night before OMD. Not sure if I can survive back to back shows on work nights. I must be getting old! 😉
