Can I borrow your leg warmers? Synthesizers and electronically programmed instrumentals have the amazing ability to evoke images of neon, shoulder pads, parachute pants, side ponytails and everything else '80s. So do songs such as "Wish I'd Known All Along," and "Heat of the Moment" by the band Asia. With a semi-new CD out entitled Phoenix, they are the special guests opening for British progressive-rock band Yes, performing at Bass Performance Hall at 8 p.m. Wednesday. Yes, with a sound that closely resembles a revamped version of The Beatles, has recorded more than a dozen albums since its formation in 1968, plus Steve Howe (the lead guitarist for the band) helped form Asia. Tickets are $45 to $85. Call 817-212-4280 or visit basshall.com.
