Psychedelic Furs with The Lemonheads: 10/24/2012

This was pretty much a fun nostalgia show for me. The Psychedelic Furs were definitely a big part of the 1980’s pop culture. Songs like “Pretty in Pink” and “Love My Way” instantly transport me back to those carefree days. Thankfully, the band was not just a bunch of lame dudes milking their prior success. They really sounded good, projected a vibrant energy, and had the audience dancing. It was just a really fun time and no disappointments at all.

The Lemonheads were a solid opening act. They were high energy and got the crowd riled. Personally, my favorite song of theirs is their cover version of “Mrs. Robinson,” which they didn’t play. But that’s OK. I was really there to see the Furs; the Lemonheads were just a bonus.

I could not find the setlist from the Orange Peel show, but this one was from St. Petersburg, FL a couple days afterwards. I think the shows were pretty similar, if not the same.
