THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:
...with THE B-52s! The quirky combo from Athens, GA, has had a long and storied career, but we'll stick to the early stuff this weekend. So, from the self-titled debut, classics "Planet Claire," "Rock Lobster," "Lava," and "Dance This Mess Around." And from the sophomore LP, Wild Planet, "Party Out of Bounds," "Give Me Back My Man", "Private Idaho" and "Dirty Back Road." BONUS: "Song For A Future Generation," because it's the first song I heard them play live. DOUBLE BONUS: "Deadbeat Club," because get off my lawn.
