THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS
 








:::THIS IS A PAST EVENT. PLEASE CHECK EVENT DATE:::

If you were to dissect today’s alternative rock music, you’ll find that much of it pays homage to The Psychedelic Furs. Led by vocalist and songwriter Richard Butler, and his bass-wielding brother Tim, the Furs scored major hits with "Love My Way," "Pretty In Pink," "Heaven," "The Ghost In You," and “Heartbreak Beat.” Born out of the post-punk UK rock scene, the Furs took off into the stratosphere in the early 80s with the advent of MTV, and when John Hughes’ approached the band with his film built around the Furs’ song “Pretty In Pink”, the band’s legacy was cemented. After a brief hiatus in the 90’s, the band has regrouped and resumed touring with a lineup that remains Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass), Rich Good (guitar), Mars Williams (saxophone), Amanda Kramer (keyboards), and Paul Garisto (drums).
