Legendary English alternative pop-rockers The Psychedelic Furs performed at the Trocadero Theatre in Philly on 6/14 as part of opening night celebration of The Awesome Fest (a 10-week citywide ’80s-themed film & music festival). The Awesome Fest will be running until mid-August and includes over 50 special events, including outdoor movie screenings and live music performances. See the full Awesome Fest schedule of events here.
While most widely recognized for “Pretty In Pink” (the song that inspired and later appeared in the soundtrack of the 1986 John Hughes film of the same name), The Psychedelic Furs had already put out a slew of superb LPs prior to that major breakthrough (including 1982’s Talk Talk Talk and 1984’s Mirror Moves). Their set at the Troc included some of their most popular singles (including “The Ghost In You”, “Love My Way”, “Heaven”, and “Pretty In Pink”), but they also delivered some deeper cuts from across their discography. Below is the official music video for their timeless single “Heaven” off of Mirror Moves. See all of The Furs’ upcoming tour dates here.
