City Slang: Big ‘80s Flashback Halloween Bash



On Friday, October 26, Static Records will present the Big ‘80s Flashback Halloween Bash at the Corktown Tavern in Detroit.

Static says, “The Big '80s Bash started as a jam session of bands playing songs from the era in their own style. It has now turned into a tribute party you won’t want to miss! This year features five local acts performing ‘80s songs like you’ve never heard them before. So expect the unexpected!”

On the bill will be Clashback (a Clash tribute), Panic Or Pain, Red September, Walkin’ Talkin’ Toxins, and White Shag performing an acoustic set.

There are prizes for those dressed as their favorite ‘80s character, and the $6 cover goes to HaterKitty Rescue Army, a local cat rescue.
