With the balcony closed, the main floor of the Pageant was nearly packed Friday night for an '80s time-machine double bill of Tom Tom Club and the Psychedelic Furs. A fan of both bands in my high school years, I was excited to see the Furs again and experience Tom Tom Club live for the first time.

The Driftaways are a seven-man reggae band hailing from St. Louis. Their E.P. "Don't Hide" is full of high-energy jams and groovy improvisations that give the band's music a good-time vibe.
