English Beat, Picture Atlantic rank into The Blank Club

See also

One of the premiere post-punk/new wave ska fusion acts of the 80s are ranking full stop to The Blank Club (44 S. Almaden Ave), this Friday (April 18th). The English Beat translated their genre into the modern age with dynamic post-punk dance hits like "Twist and Crawl, "Save It For Later," and "Mirror in the Bathroom." Their unique and unforgettable style graced period movie soundtracks for screen mega-hits like "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" all the way to 80s reunion films like "Grosse Point Blank."

In support, local alt-rock legends-in-waiting, Picture Atlantic, inaugurate the evening with a set-list that tentatively includes new tracks from their yet-to-be named forthcoming release. The 4-piece will be fresh off a video release party for "White Knight." (Check it HERE.)

The performance also significant as PA keyboardist, Brian Graves, counts down to his final performance with the troupe. The band announced an amicable parting of ways with the keyboardist; his very last performance is set for May 2nd at Santa Cruz's The Crepe Place. His texturing and musical depth will, no doubt, be missed. No plans have been announced for a replacement.

On a further aside, PA Bassist, Ryan Blair will be celebrating his birthday, so be sure to throw a 'cheers' his way.
