MODERN ENGLISH TO LIGHT UP THE ALADDIN THEATER
REMEMBER THIS? The new decade is shaping up to be a very busy and productive time for Modern English. Not only is 2010 the 31st anniversary of the long-running alternative pop-rock/post-punk band, but also, 2010 marks the release of Soundtrack—Modern English's first new album since 1996.
This year, four veterans of Modern English's early years—lead singer Robbie Grey, guitarist Gary McDowell, bassist Mick Conroy and keyboardist Stephen Walker—are hitting the road together for the first time since the mid-80s.
For those who remember the British outfit for their 1982 smash "I Melt with You", and other 80s hits such as "Hands Across the Sea," "Life in the Gladhouse" and "Ink and Paper," this reunion tour is an historic event. But as Grey, who has been Modern English's frontman since 1979, points out, the tour will not be simply an exercise in 1980s nostalgia; it will be a celebration of the present as well as the past. Modern English will perform songs from Soundtrack, including their infectious new single "It's OK," as well as favorites from classic 1980s albums like Mesh & Lace, After the Snow and Ricochet Days.
Thursday, September 9th, Portlanders can go back in time and see Modern English at historic The Aladdin Theater, (http://www.aladdin-theater.com) and cut a rug to some of their most recent anthems to boot. (We dare you to wear a side ponytail.)
Tickets available at the Aladdin Theater's box office or through ticketmaster.
