Giveaway: Two Pairs of Tickets to See The Psychedelic Furs at the Granada of Thursday
You can't read Catherine Downes' take on the Psychedelic Furs's stop through the Granada Theater on Thursday night just yet--it's in this upcoming weeks' paper, and that sucker ain't out yet. But because I'm in a pretty decent mood this afternoon, here's a taste:
Unlike many of their peers who rode New Wave to fame in the early '80s only to end up as dusty, record store memories, the Psychedelic Furs are still alive and touring. Thank John Hughes for that; after all, having the classic 1986 romantic-comedy/coming-of-age film Pretty In Pink named after the band's then-five-year-old song was a pretty sweet deal that only required them to re-record and sax it up for the soundtrack.
And it was hardly their only hit: The Furs produced some undeniably timeless tracks over the years with "Love My Way," "Heaven" and "The Ghost In You," and it's safe to assume that the band will be including these hits, as well as "Pretty In Pink," in its upcoming Dallas performance. These are, after all, the songs that have kept the London New Wavers together (on and off) and touring for well over three decades and, more often than not, to sold-out crowds.
Yes, there's plenty to get psyched about with this show. (See what I did there?)
Many thanks, then, to our friends at the Granada Theater, who've been kind enough to pass along two pairs of tickets for us to hand out to the Thursday night show. Want a pair? You got it--if you're among the first two people to email me right now with the words "Fur Me?" in the subject line. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
