The new wave dance party at The Blue Note wasn’t just old punks. Although the music was a throwback to the ’80s, the crowd was a good mix of young and old. New wave music seems to appeal to people of all ages; it’s timeless.
Organizer Craig Darymple and the Crusty Old Columbia Punks were there in full force, dressed like it was still 1985 with leopard pants, black skinny ties and pork pie hats. Everyone was having a fun time and letting loose, and there were even a couple of people hula hooping.
DJs Julia Swanson and Brent Gardner played some good new wave music with songs including “Once in A Lifetime” by the Talking Heads, “I Wanna Be Sedated” by the Ramones and “Bizarre Love Triangle” by New Order. During the dance party, ’80s movies including Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off played on a big screen on stage.
Overall there was fun to be had and plenty of good tunes for the decent-sized crowd to relive the ’80s nostalgia.
