Cowabunga, Dude! The 80’s Are Back

Who doesn’t love the 80’s? Rad outfits, hairstyles, the word “rad”, David Bowie, and scratch-n-sniff’s — need I say more? Well, this weekend, the undying spirit of the 80’s is making its way back into Happy Valley for Rock the 80’s, a benefit concert for the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund.

The show at the State Theatre (@TheStateTheatre) features a great lineup of local musicians, covering everything from pop to hair metal. It all benefits the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund, which provides financial support for families dealing with cancer. The full lineup is given below.

You can get a standard ticket for $25, or a VIP ticket for $50, which gets you into the pre-concert reception with food and drink provided. The VIP reception starts at 5:50 p.m. on Saturday at the State Theatre, and the concert starts at 7. Don’t miss your chance to relive the greatest decade ever!
