the english beat

Get excited ska fans! 1980’s Two-tone era living legends The English Beat, led by front man Dave Wakeling, are coming to Los Angeles and headlining The Roxy on Saturday, August 15th for what will no doubt be an upbeat, dance-crazed night of music. Expect to hear and sing along to all the boss classics such as “Mirror in the Bathroom,” “Hands Off..She’s Mine,” and “Twist & Crawl,” just to name a few. The band is also working on a new album, Here We Go Love, and concert-goers will likely be the first to get a preview of it. Time to bust out your sharpest attire and your dancing shoes!
