If you didn't catch the English Beat's set when it opened for Devo this summer, you may recall the '80s new-wave sensation for its hits "Mirror in the Bathroom" (as heard in Grosse Pointe Blank, one of the great love letters to the new-wave decade) and "I Confess." For this show, the band is not only within arm's reach, but it's playing for a low, low price. And now that you're thinking about "Mirror in the Bathroom," be advised that once a song gets stuck in your head, the best way to stop it is to dance to it.
