Totally 80’s Night is coming very soon! We’re looking forward to Le Cure opening up a portal back to the 80’s, but we’re also extremely excited to see Ishi perform as a Depeche Mode tribute band, called Depeshi. It’s a unique idea for a band like Ishi to do an entire set of cover songs. But then, Ishi is a very unique band. They manage to seamlessly blend disco dancing with tribal rhythms, and have a style that sits somewhere between brightly-futuristic and softly-spiritual. We’re really looking forward to seeing what they do with a set full of Depeche Mode covers!
Before the show, we played a game of “Would You Rather” with John, the frontman of Ishi. These are his answers:
Would you rather: LISTEN TO ONE SONG ON REPEAT, LISTEN TO A WHOLE ALBUM, or LISTEN TO A PLAYLIST?
I want to listen to the entire album. Take me on a journey.
Imagine you get the Midas Touch, would you rather: EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH TURNS GOLD, EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH TURNS NEON, or EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH BECOMES SEQUENCED?
Would you rather: MAKE UP, MAKE OUT or MAKE BELIEVE?
Make believe, for sure! Because I can still do the latter while believing.
Which way would you rather be known as: HARD TO DEFINE, HARD TO PREDICT, or HARD TO FORGET?
Hard to forget.
Would you rather: ONLY BE ABLE TO WHISPER WHAT YOU SAY or ONLY BE ABLE TO SHOUT WHAT YOU SAY?
Whispering is just fine with me. It’s sexy, and no girl wants someone to shout in their ear.
Would you rather: LIVE FOR 1,000 YEARS, or LIVE TEN LIFETIMES IN NON-CONSECUTIVE ERAS?
I’m cool with living for a 1,000 years and changing things up every 100 years.
Let’s say you were a mad scientist, would you rather: CREATE SOMETHING MONSTROUS, or DESTROY SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL?
I would create something monstrous. I’m a fan of creating, whether it be ugly or pretty.
Would you rather: BE SUPER FAMOUS, or BE SUPER INFAMOUS?
Let’s say you could make one fictional creature real, would you rather it were: MERMAIDS, UNICORNS, or DRAGONS?
Unicorns, because they can teleport, right?
Would you rather have: SUPER-SONIC HEARING, or a SUPER-SONIC VOICE?
I’m gonna go with super-sonic voice. It seems to be more effective in the comic books I’ve read.
Totally 80s Night is on April 26th, and will feature Le Cure (The Cure Tribute) and Depeshi (Ishi as Depeche Mode)
