Mohawk Place has played host to a lot of Bill Page’s dance parties over the years, from the infamous Transmission series to decade themed parties to the classic annual Smiths and Cure throw down. But tonight, Page will team up with Aaron Andrews to pay tribute to two different bands of the 80’s: the original heroes of synth pop, Depeche Mode and New Order.
Everything from the groups’ biggest anthems like “Personal Jesus” and “Temptation” to deeper cuts like “Vanishing Point” and “Halo” will get a spin. These “vs” parties have always been one of the most fun nights in Buffalo and again, selections have been spot on. It’s the classic London/Manchester rivalry played out on sonic scale, so tune in tonight to see who comes out victorious.
Cover is $5 at the door and music kicks off at Mohawk at 10:30pm.
