For one night only, the East Bay’s leading ‘80s Alternative cover band The Darkside will perform a special acoustic set of edgy, first-wave modern rock. Come relive the guitar-driven sounds of The Cure and The Smiths, the goth-pop of Depeche Mode and New Order, the new wave jangle of early R.E.M. and Talking Heads, and even the occasional alt-gem from pioneering acts like The Church, Echo & The Bunnymen, The The and The Smithereens.
Expect some surprising takes on post-punk classics, as well as a few eccentric touches (Spanish freestyle rap vocals over “West End Girls” anyone?).
The Darkside have made a name for themselves playing locally at venues like Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco as well as co-headlining festivals like the Lafayette Food & Wine Festival.
Tickets are $12 and are available at the link below or at the door the night of the show. Doors open one hour before show time. If you need more information or have any questions, please call us at #510-654-3808.
