MIX TAPE 1991

mixtape I was alive and I waited, waited. I was alive and I waited for this. MIXTAPE is back.

Picture it. 1991. Your 80s-flavored cassingles (Color Me Badd! Bryan Adams! Paula Abdul! C+C Music Factory! Boyz II Men!) sat side by side with CD longboxes (longboxes!) of everything 90s (Nirvana! Soundgarden! Pumpkins! Teenage Fanclub!). Stalwarts like U2, REM, and Metallica put out seminal albums, Lollapalooza was launched, Donnie Wahlberg set his hotel room on fire, and everyone was doing the Bartman. It was kind of a quietly – and weirdly – brilliant year for music.

Featuring the aforementioned music and so much more, as performed by:

  • The Field Effect
  • The Fatal Flaw
  • Joe Turner and the Seven Levels
  • and opening mini-sets from The Friends of Mixtape

Saturday, May 11th at Radio
$10, 21+, doors at 8pm, Music at 9pm

Spoiler: No one is doing “More Than Words.” You’re welcome.
