Description

On Closing Night we celebrate 80s Alt Rock with a playlist of some of the hit music videos of 120 Minutes and other fringe music programming of the years between punk and grunge. In the 80s, “alternative” in Alt Rock actually meant something. The alternative to pop music, to R&B, to classic rock. Some of the bands that started out on the college radio circuit became huge pop stars, like U2, REM and The Police. Others built giant cult followings like the Violent Femmes, The Replacements, Madness and the Pixies. This month IndieFest celebrates 80s Alt Rock with a play list of some of the hit music videos of 120 Minutes and other fringe music programming of the years between punk and grunge. We know you know all the words, but just in case, we'll have the lyrics on screen for you to sing a long to.

 

Double Feature ticket includes I Want My MTV and I Forgot What 8 Was For.
