What’s going on at Irving Plaza, July 1984

Los Lobos! Ruben Blades! Nona Hendryx! Check out this supercool band lineup.

Best of all is the beach party show sponsored by WLIR 92.7, the station that played all those British synth pop and New Wave records and always picked a Screamer of the Week.

This ad appeared in the July 1984 East Village Eye.

“I don’t get around how you get around”

Cool old ad in the December/January 1986 East Village Eye for They Might Be Giants’ first record, which features the poppy and nonsensical “Don’t Let’s Start.” I think I heard it that spring when it was in heavy rotation on WLIR. (Or was it WDRE by then?)

I called the number for Dial-A-Song but it just rang and rang. To protect any innocent parties who may have that number now, I felt compelled to block out the last few digits.
