OMG, The Go-Go’s are Back and They’re Going to Play the Fillmore August 16th, 2011

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Now, you kids are too young to remember the 80′s, but your parents certainly know that:

The Go-Go’s were the most popular all-female band to emerge from the punk/new wave explosion of the late ’70s and early ’80s, becoming one of the first commercially successful female groups that wasn’t controlled by male producers or managers. While their hit singles — “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” “Head Over Heels” — were bright, energetic new wave pop, the group was an integral part of the Californian punk scene”

Well, OMG, they’re back and they’re going to play the Fillmore Theatre August 16th. Deets below.

Oh, here they are, Meet the Gogo’s:

Anyway, all the deets of this summer’s Ladies Gone Wild Tour, after the jump.
