It was a night of essentially a triple header line-up of bands that made their reputations with big hits in the 80s, and in the end, for those who stayed through to the end of the show that ended at about midnight, it closed out as a very intimate show of kindred spirits as Martha Davis from The Motels came down from the stage and gifted those fans all around her a very special rendition of “Only The Lonely”, which closed out an amazing evening at the Blu42 Sports Lounge in Walnut Creek, California. Also performing were Dramarama and a new line-up of Bow Wow Wow with original founding member and bass player Leigh Gorman.
The Blu42 Sports Lounge in Walnut Creek will be hosting a special 80s event at their venue, with Martha Davis and The Motels, Bow Wow Wow, and Dramarama all performing in concert. Martha Davis and The Motels will also be playing the Red Devil Lounge the following night in San Francisco, with Keaton Simons and DJ Dennis The Menace supporting. They will also be playing a double header with The Bangles at the Los Angeles County Fair on September 2nd and one date in Florida and then an extensive tour of Australia and New Zealand in November and December.
