In 1979, The English Beat (formerly known as The Beat) played their first show. Since then, they’ve maintained their hard- earned status as one
of the world’s favorite two-tone ska revival bands. With a sound that blends ska, punk, reggae, pop and funk, founding member Dave Wakeling will bring the band’s classic hits— think “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Save It for Later” — to the Magic Bag stage. Get ready to dance.

$22. 8pm, Wednesday, April 23. The Magic Bag, 22920 Woodward Ave., Ferndale, MI. 248-544-3030. Tickets at themagicbag.com or ticketweb.com.
