Come early for a “Hit & Run” Record Swap in the lobby with Trash American Style!

A double header of great music!  Founded by Dave Wakeling you may remember the six-member The English Beat for their top 40 song “Save it For Later” in the early 80’s but this ska, pop, reggae band had a string of top 100 hits including “I Confess,” “Can’t Get Used to Losing You,” “Mirror in the Bathroom,” “Hands off She’s Mine,” and many others. Just one listen to the vocals of lead singer Dave Wakeling will bring you back to the 80’s sound that you can’t help but get up and dance to!

Veteran alt-rockers Soul Asylum bring their hits “Runaway Train,” “Black Gold,” “Misery” and much more! It’s been six years since Soul Asylum has soulasylum194x149issued a new album. But as evidenced by the arrival of ‘Delayed Reaction’ (the group’s first release for 429 Records), the wait was most certainly worth it. Fans will be happy to discover the group’s trademark ragged-but-right sound is still very much intact, and that they’ve turned back the clock to the good old days when full albums actually mattered – rather than just a smattering of singles padded with filler. And the proof is in the pudding – such tunes as “Gravity,” “The Streets” and “By the Way” prove that Soul Asylum has created an incredibly consistent album from front to back.
