First Wave plays the great songs that helped bring “alternative rock” to the forefront of pop culture and awareness in the 1980s. It plays music when individual expression thru music trends was first accepted, and everyone wanted to look like the video stars of MTV. Hear the first wave of alternative music from the era that defined alternative. If you ever wore a skinny tie, had spiked hair, or pogoed to the beat, 1st Wave is for you. Longer on synthesizers than guitars, First Wave makes it okay for rock fans who want to dance! What we play: The Clash, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Echo & the Bunnymen, Morrissey, New Order, The Police, Psychedelic Furs, The Ramones, REM, The Smiths, Squeeze, Tears For Fears, U2 and many more.
