For those lucky enough to be in the sold out crowd gathered at Austin intimate La Zona Rosa that and many other B-52s hits were on the menu, though with enough of their later material that it couldn't be referred too as 80s night.
It was a distinctly older crowd that packed the venue, though many seemed to have brought kids as small groups of teens and pre-teens could be seen in the audience. Everyone had fun, even though it was crowded and hot, and I found it difficult to not sing along with the band, as did many others. In fact as I headed out for the night I trailed a couple women who wandered off to their car singing "Roam". It's always fun to see a big act in a small club, rather than something like the Erwin Center, I wish it would happen more often. For a look at the set list click here.
Austin power pop fav's The Ugly Beats put on a strong opening set that fit well. It's good to see them on a larger stage.
