City Slang: Big '80s Flashback Halloween Bash



On Friday, October 25, Static Records will host the “BIG '80s Flashback Halloween Bash” at the Corktown Tavern in Detroit.

They say, “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 bands performing ‘80s songs like you’ve never heard them before. So expect the unexpected! Performing a tribute to the '80s will be: LOUDMOUTH BABY (all-female Ramones tribute), TWITCH, PANIC OR PAIN, RED SEPTEMBER, and WALKIN’ TALKIN’ TOXINS.

Arrive in costume as a favorite ‘80s character and win a prize. The party starts at 9 p.m. for anyone 21 and over, and cover is $6. Proceeds benefit the Hater Kitty Rescue Army, a local cat rescue group.
