Party Pick of the Week: Hey Ho! Before You Go Go!
The Gabba Heys
This Saturday, three retro-themed events earn our spotlight. As luck would have it, each happens at a different time, so you can hit all three in succession.
Start your day having some fun under the warm California sun at Goodie Tu-Shoes, which continues its daytime series with a tribute To the Ramones at the Standard downtown beginning at 1 p.m. The party features live cover band the Gabba Heys as well as DJs -- but in this weather, probably best to leave the leather jackets at home, punkers.
Later, check out WHAM! The Boys Behind the Shorts, a new musical/dance party that tells the torrid tale of George Michael's love for his '80s bandmate, Andrew Ridgley ... and how that slut Boy George got in the way! It all goes down at Spirit Studio in Silver Lake beginning at 8:30 p.m.
Finally, get your '80s goth on at Shadowplay, a new event from the people behind Club Underground, hosted by Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown. Show your Peter Murphy or ComicCon stubs for free entrance, beginning at 9 p.m.
