    My rockstar mom visits that day and we need a night out. We bridge the gap for 80’s college music. She raised me right!

    I’d be super stoked to re-live the 80’s music scene! I love the Smiths and am very familiar to that era of music. Also, I have a friend coming to town from Minnesota who’d love this as well! Thanks for offering this!

    I want to celebrate my best friend’s birthday with him listening to some of his favorite songs! He’s obsessed with everything 80s, and so am I, especially the music. The Talking Heads are our favorites. This would be such a cool opportunity for us, thank you for the offer!
