Strange 80's 2
After some major life changes, I’m playing a bit of catch up. Out of the many events that I attended on behalf of Fangirl Nation, the one that stands out the most is the Strange 80’s 2 concert in October.
The full highlight review can be seen HERE at Fangirl Nation. Strange 80’s was a the second annual concert hosted by Charity bomb to bring musicians together on stage for charity. The event brought together random musical legends to cover 80s song. It created a night of absolute random musical experience. There was the Chris Patrick (N*Sync) singing a Def Leppard song with David Haskins (who played Mr. Belding from Saved By the Bell). Or when I realized that Noodles (Offpring) was playing the theme song from Kung Fury with David Hasselhoff.
As memorable as it was, it did make a for a very long night. It was a pattern of artists collaborating on a song together, then they exit, crew re-arranges the cords, and then the next combo arrives. There was a lot of waiting happening. Not all of the collabs delivered on performance, most were brief, but there were a few moments that made it just awesome. Other than was what was mentioned above, my personal favorite moment was watching Jared (Bowling for Soup) just dominate the mike for 3 songs. His charisma and overall rock attitude was a refreshing in levity and energy.
