A Flock of Seagulls

With Whitechapel. 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, February 8, $20 (all ages). The Winchester, 12112 Madison Ave., Lakewood, 216-226-5681.


Mike Score's flap-in-the-face hairdo launched a thousand punchlines, but over 20 years later, you still can't go too long without hearing a Flock of Seagulls song, so who's laughing now, funny man? The Flock broke up briefly in the late '80s, but it's been recording new music since the '90s. The current lineup reunites most of the original members, and while the singer-keyboardist might not sport the hairstyle any longer, "I Ran" and "Space Age Love Song" are still in the set list. Joining the bill are Cleveland's tech-rock revivalists Whitechapel, so dancing won't just be encouraged; it will be inevitable.
